Ralph's Italian Ices sues Mamaroneck

Posted: Updated:

The owner of Ralph's Italian Ices in Mamaroneck is now suing the town.

Ralph's was forced to shut down last month after the zoning board of appeals denied the ice cream hot spot's permit over noise and safety concerns raised by neighbors.

Critics say that children outside the shop were 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 owner wants the court to force the town to reopen the store and pay him at least $300,000.
