HEAVEN IN A CONE

There is a heaven. I know this because I've had ice cream at the Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory. The first day the temperature went over 50 I asked my daughter and her friend, Carly, if they would like ice cream for lunch. They were fine with that. Matter of fact, if they could drive, they would have left tracks. The Factory’s ice cream is all about fresh ingredients and classic flavors. I'm a vanilla nut myself and can attest that the vanilla in Brooklyn is creamy and perfect. The day we visited, the menu consisted of vanilla, chocolate, chocolate chunk, peach, strawberry and maple walnut. With great journalistic integrity, I sampled a little of each. I'm here to tell you they were all great. Although they could have chosen from an assortment of syrups and toppings, the girls stuck to a sugar cone with vanilla ice cream and sprinkles. The hot fudge has a 72 percent cacao content and is 100 percent worth every calorie. The Factory is located in a 1920s fireboat house on the Brooklyn waterfront and its founder, Mark Thompson, is passionate about his product. You can take your ice cream outside to the pier and enjoy the spectacular view of the Manhattan skyline, the Brooklyn Bridge and the East River. It feels like a great vacation and you don't need tickets. Grimaldi's is up the block and has great pizza. Since we decided to eat dessert first, we went for pizza after our ice cream. The ice cream is not cheap ($2.50 per scoop in a cup or dish), but it's worth a car ride or a walk across the Brooklyn Bridge.
