I thought I'd post a quick note to announce a new face in North Brooklyn. On Saturday, the wonderful folks at Van Leeuwen Artisan Ice Cream opened the doors to their first ice cream store in Greenpoint, and as a welcoming present to the neighborhood gave away free ice cream and samples of baked goods. What a great first impression!
You might have heard of Van Leeuwen already - their beautifully renovated mail trucks have been serving up ice cream all over Brooklyn and Manhattan for the past two summers.
As I've noted several times on this blog, the vanilla ice cream they produce is probably the best vanilla ice cream I've ever tasted. So, if you're in the neighborhood, be sure to stop on by the new Van Leeuwen store - you won't be disappointed.
