Mamaroneck Ralph’s Italian Ices ordered to shut down

MAMARONECK -

Mamaroneck officials have ordered the shutdown of Ralph's Italian Ices on Boston Post Road.

The zoning board of appeals has denied the ice cream hot spot's permit over noise and safety concerns raised by neighbors.

Critics say that children outside the shop are at risk of getting hit by cars, even after a number of steps to increase safety. The shop reconfigured its parking lot and expanded its footprint to fit more people inside by renting the space next door.

Ralph's also hired more employees to reduce the size of lines and placed a parking attendant outside.

The shop must close within a week.
