Carvel ice cream was born in Hartsdale in 1934 when Greek immigrant Tom Carvelas’ ice cream truck broke down on Memorial Day weekend on Central Avenue in Hartsdale, and Carvelas quickly realized that people were buying and enjoying the soft melted ice cream as much as they were the harder variety—thus, soft serve was discovered!
