The Upper East Side, by contrast, is Very Happy

Newsday.com: Politician not happy with Staten Island landfill-themed ice cream
Kim and Scott Myles, the Queens couple who founded 5 Boroughs Ice Cream, which produces "Staten Island Landfill," said they intended no harm with the moniker.

Kim Myles, 33, told the Daily News in Wednesday's edition that it is a "flavor with heart."

The company markets other city-based ice cream flavors, including "Jackson Heights Mangodesh," "South Bronx Cha Cha Chocolate" and even "Upper East Side Rich White Vanilla."

The chairman of the upper East Side Community Board 8, David Liston, said if the ice cream was good, he would eat it.

So what's the alternative?
The Staten Island borough president has offered an alternate name for a Staten Island ice cream _ "Ferry Berry," after the Staten Island Ferry.

That's a much more positive image.
