Schraffts & Bassetts Ice Cream

After reading the post on fountain treats and trying out the Speckled Trout this afternoon, my mind in some sort of sick way has wandered off into ice cream land ...... even in this ridiculous cold.

Anyway, was wondering if anyone knew of any outlets (for dipped) or specialty stores (for cartons) in Manhattan where one can find either Schraffts or Bassetts Ice Cream. The former, of legendary NY fame, seems to have disappeared almost entirely although one can, oddly enough, find it at the New York, New York Hotel in Las Vegas.

As to Bassetts of Philadelphia fame, there used to be several ice cream stores that served it in the late 1980's (Mary T's Last Licks on Greenwich Ave. & 7th among others) and once in a while you could find it in a specialty store.

Anyone privy to secret hiding places for one or both of these brands? Thanks.
