Chocolate in the City: Union Square & East Village Apartments near Stand Burger (Surprisingly best Chocolate Milkshakes in the city)

August 18, 2011

I finally get to combine my love of chocolate and food with the love of apartment hunting! Weekly I will share with you my top sweets and restaurants in the city and how to live only blocks away from them…

[caption id="attachment_238" align="alignright" width="300" caption="Toasted Marshmallow Shake from Stand Burger (picture via "][/caption]

This week: Stand Burger's MILKSHAKES at 24 east 12th street.

CLASSIC SHAKES mini $4 / regular $6
Vanilla, chocolate malt, blueberry pie, strawberry, banana, black and white, apple pie, fresh mint, pumpkin, maple almond'

PREMIUM GELATO SHAKES mini $5 / regular $7
Toasted marshmallow, honey lavender chocolate, chocolate peanut butter cup, mint cookies and cream

People swear by the Toasted marshmallow while I love their classic chocolate. I have had milkshakes just about everywhere and there is just something different about theirs- it is probably the Gelato. Whatever it is, before summer ends I highly recommend trekking over there and getting one. Fortunately,  or perhaps unfortunately for my ever expanding waist line, I live in this hood.

if you want to live within walking distance to the best shakes in the city, here are some recommended no-fee NYC apartment buildings for you:
