It’s a dish best served cold.
A beloved Dumbo ice cream shop recently forced out of the neighborhood is making a sweet comeback. Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory — which operated out of the historic fireboat house at Fulton Ferry Landing for 17 years before closing last December — will open a new storefront just steps from its old shop, facing off against the rival that scooped it out, said the Factory’s co-founder.
“The Ice Cream Factory was a fixture in the neighborhood,” said Mark Thompson. “We were forced out of the space, and I left gracefully — but I couldn’t get ice cream out of my blood.”
Thompson hopes to open his new space, at 14A Old Fulton Street, in October. The location will be a walk-up window based in a hollowed-out cargo container, near the entrance to Brooklyn Bridge Park. https://www.brooklynpaper.com/stories/42/31/24-ice-cream-factory-return-2019-08-02-bk.html
