The Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory is an ice cream shop at a converted 1922 fireboat house at 1 Water Street, on the Fulton Ferry Landing Pier in Brooklyn, New York City, in the shadow of the Brooklyn Bridge in the Dumbo neighborhood.
DUMBO (short for Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass) is an upscale residential and commercial neighborhood, known for attracting tech startups and as the headquarters for Etsy and West Elm. Many of the former industrial buildings have been converted to luxury residential lofts and office spaces. Residents and tourists flock down to Brooklyn Bridge Park for a ride on the famed Jane’s Carousel, a 1922 merry-go-round painstakingly restored, and for views of the water and twinkling bridges against the Manhattan skyline. You can’t go wrong with either of the famous coal-stoned pizzas at Grimaldi’s and Juliana’s (famed neighbors and rivals). Make sure to stop by the PowerHouse Arena to browse through their well curated book and art selection.
