state of gelato in new paltz/catskill area?

hello everyone, i am curious as to what the gelato scene (or lack thereof) is like in the aforementioned area...i live in LA, where we have the most amazing gelato place called scoops, and the proprietor, tai, makes new flavors daily using the freshest ingredients. he has flavors such as brown bread (made w grape nuts!), blueberry/coconut, oreo/mascarpone, vegan flavors, you get the drift. is there anything like this in the catskill area (and i know the catskills encompass a pretty big area, but i'm thinking more along the lines of rte. 28, in woodstock, phoenicia, etc., areas that are more heavily trafficked, or maybe around newburgh to new paltz) because i think a place like this would be a huge hit. now i know there are lots of good local ice cream places, and i for one loves me some stewart's when i'm back upstate (and my god, it's so cheap!), but think people in this area would definitely take to this...what do you all think? i guess i'm just tired of LA and miss NY, especially upstate, and i would love to open my own business although it's hard and i would need to go to school and all that (i'm pretty sure), but what an experience it would be...thanks so much!
