Urban Pops Opens NYC Cafe in Penn Station’s Moynihan Hall

For those in Brooklyn and the Jersey Shore, you may already be familiar with the delicious pareve frozen treats by Urban Pops. Now, anyone community through Midtown Manhattan can taste one of Urban Pop’s homemade custom ice pops at their new Penn Station location (currently in its Soft Opening phase), located on the very west end of Moynihan Hall, the new train hall between 8th and 9th Avenues that opened a few years ago, steps away from the entrance on 9th Avenue and 32nd street.

This location is not a typical frozen treats shop. Urban Pops currently offers an array of prepackaged kosher snacks and salads from Jus by Julie in addition to their ice pops. In the near future, this location will serve as a cafe, serving coffee and grab-and-go items like pastries, bagels, and sandwiches.

Urban Pops flavors for the main product vary and may be gluten-free or nut-free, or neither. Here is a full list of their allergen warnings per flavor.

The current Soft Opening hours of operation are Sun-Thu are 10:30am-8pm and Fri until 1 hour before Shabbat. Closed Shabbat.

Urban Pops (post-Soft Opening) will be open Sun-Thu 8am-8pm and Fri until 1 hour before Shabbat. Closed Shabbat.

All products served at this location are made elsewhere and are prepackaged. Urban Pops ice pops are pareve under the OK. Jus by Julie products in the fridge are certified under the OU.
