Sugar Hill Creamery. The name says it all. Harlem’s first family-owned handmade ice cream shop opened its doors in 2017 and was followed 3 years later by a second location in Hamilton Heights. Sugar Hill is the brainchild of Petrushka Bazin Larsen and her husband Nick Larsen. Their confections include homemade, small batch ice cream, non-dairy frozen desserts with both seasonal and classic flavors. Petrushka’s not only a successful entrepreneur, she’s also a community activist, hosting programs for Sugar Hill customers and neighbors that include a New Mom’s Group, Book Club and Craft Night.
