The weather this past weekend was beautiful in New York City and my husband and I decided to go over to the new Brooklyn Bridge Park on Sunday to enjoy a stroll along its paths and take in the views of the Manhattan skyline. As we approached the park entrance we saw the Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory building--the white building in the photo above--and decided that an ice cream cone would be a perfect refreshment to carry along on our stroll.
The Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory is located in a landmark fireboat house on the Fulton Ferry Pier, and features one of most sweeping views in America-- the Brooklyn Bridge and the Manhattan skyline. They offer simple, pure and delicious ice cream, home made in small batches. It is so delicious there is almost always a line of people waiting to get in to purchase some. We saw so many people coming out of the factory with banana splits that we quickly decided to treat ourselves and share one.
We chose coffee, vanilla chocolate chunk and butter pecan ice creams, with toppings of caramel and hot fudge syrup, walnuts, and fresh whipped cream. It was absolutely fabulous!
It was a wonderful summer treat that we shared in the shadow of the iconic Brooklyn Bridge.
Please join me on my next post and I'll show you scenes from the new Brooklyn Brdge Park and its magnificent views!
