I dont think I have seen much mention of Ice cream on this sight. The new Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory (Old Fulton St. right by the River Cafe) is producing wonderfully simple Ice Cream; limiting itself to 6 flavours (the best is the butter pecan). I have to admit, as much as I loved the old Petes on Atlantic avenue (nothing like hippy decour to go with your ice cream), the ice cream was never that great. The people who work at the Ice Cream factory have been great to us, helping keep the kids entertained. Would love to hear others thoughts/suggestions on other great ice cream in Brooklyn/Queens.
