Address: Fulton Ferry Landing Pier, 1 Water St., Brooklyn
With an awe-inspiring Manhattan view, the Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory is located on the water's edge in DUMBO. The ice cream shop has been turning out mouth-watering cold stuff since it opened in 2001.
No beating around the bush: The butter pecan is the flavor of choice. Rich, creamy and sweet, each serving is bountiful, full of toasted almond bites. Order with a sugar or waffle cone depending on your crunch preference.
If you go to one ice cream shop in New York, make it this one. Classic cones, and a classic view.
Other Notable Flavors: Strawberry and Coffee.
