MAMARONECK, N.Y. -- I scream. You scream. Many neighbors of Ralph’s, a popular ice cream store in Mamaroneck, are screaming about what they call its chilling effect on their mental health and physical safety, according to lohud.com.

Their chief gripes? Noise, crowds, trash and traffic, says lohud.com's report.

Ralph’s, which sells Italian ices and other frozen goodies at its 946 E. Boston Post spot, is a seasonal shop and was classified by the village as a retail establishment, which meant it had to meet fewer requirements than a restaurant, lohud.com reported.

Last month, residents petitioned the Zoning Board of Appeals complaining that the lack of a site plan review had created a dangerous situation with access in and out of Ralph’s parking lot, the lohud.com article said.

Saying Ralph's itself did nothing wrong, the village nevertheless tossed the shop’s retail status and is now requiring it to seek a special permit and its OK on a site plan, and has cut back on its hours of operation, moves which the store’s owner, Scott Rosenberg, says are unfair at this stage of the game, the lohud.com article said.
