The Lemon Ice King of Corona
It all started in a NYC garage in 1944. This is where Nicola Benfaremo began selling his legendary Italian Ices to what was then a largely Italian neighborhood in Queens. In 1964, his son, Peter, partnered up with him to open a storefront, just in time for the World's Fair in Flushing Meadows Park across the street.
For decades, people have traveled the distance to taste Benfaremo's secret recipe, available in over 25 different flavors. Order a cup or take home a bucket full of your favorite flavor. Nothing tastes better on a hot summer day! The recipe hasn't changed since the shop opened and many people believe this is the key to the Lemon Ice King's success.
