Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory

Open since 2001, this New England-style ice cream shack, located right on Fulton Ferry Landing, is open year-round to refresh visitors and locals alike as they take in the panoramic views of the Manhattan skyline.

“Mark Thompson excels at making custardy ice cream,” says GO Brooklyn’s Tina Barry, which may be why vanilla is still the top seller of his eight classic flavors. Other popular choices are vanilla chocolate chunk, chocolate chocolate chunk, and strawberry; special flavors are also offered whenever Thompson is inspired to concoct them. If you have an unusually large craving, go for the $7.50 banana split, a heaping mound of three scoops of ice cream, hot fudge, whipped cream and, of course, sliced bananas. Cool!

The factory is open Sunday-Wednesday, from noon to 11 pm, and Thursday-Saturday, from noon to 11 pm. From Labor Day through Memorial Day, the shop is closed Mondays. Look forward to another location opening in Greenpoint, said Thompson.
