Sweet Janes, beloved ice cream haunt in the edge of the Ditmars area, is closing down and looking for a new space. From their Facebook page:

Dear Sweet Janes Fans,
Bears do it and we are going to do it too…
With winter on the horizon, it is time for Sweet Janes Astoria to hibernate and return in the spring. With deepest regret we announce that we will not awake from our slumber in the same location, however, we are seeking a new home in the immediate area in Astoria.
Our last day in 2016 will be Sunday, October 23rd.
Please keep in touch on social media for updates on our grand re-opening and be sure to leave your email address at the counter to get news as its happen.
With much love, admiration and gratitude – we couldn’t have made it three summers without you!

Wish wish them the best of luck in finding a new space. Ditmars rents keep going up because it’s the new hot area in the neighborhood, so we may very well see them elsewhere. How about you? Where do you think they should they reopen in Astoria?
