Gus and YiaYia's

Robert Huckestein Robert Huckestein


Oil on Canvas, *limited edition prints available* Creating a limited edition print was a longtime goal that took nearly five years to achieve. Gus and YiaYia’s ice ball cart is a scene that is familiar to many Pittsburghers and brings back warm memories from their youth. The bright orange pushcart with its big multicolored umbrella has been a Pittsburgh landmark for more than 60 years. From the first signs of spring until the last leaves fall, seven days a week, 12 hours a day, Gus and Stella Kalaris greet refreshment seekers of all ages on Western Avenue in the North Side. Four generations of Pittsburghers have flocked to Gus and YiaYia’s for their old-fashioned ice balls. The icy treats have been sold from this same location since Kalaris’ father, George, bought the cart and started the business in 1934. Each ice ball is hand scraped from a 75-pound block of ice and sweetened with one of many mouth-watering flavors. A trip to Gus and YiaYia’s brings to mind favorite childhood reminiscences for many adults and creates memories for more children each year.
