    Huge portion sizes. 1 scoop for $3.50, 2 for $5.50, and 3 for $7.50! Great views of Manhattan and the Brooklyn Bridge, and you can often see weddings being shot nearby. Cherry vanilla chocolate chunk!

    If you cant decide between the butter pecan or the vanilla chocolate chunk... Ask nicely and they'll gladly offer you a half/half option on the one scoop! Then enjoy your ice cream with a view.

    This place is my favorite! Especially in the summer, enjoy a delicious double scoop of ice cream in a cone while admiring the breathtaking manhattan skyline. A little pricey but 100% worth it!

    No frills, just delicious ice cream on the water and a view of downtown. My favorite is the butter pecan. Consider getting a sandwich if you're a fan of cookies.

    Fantastic ice cream, not to confuse with the Italian gelato. It's typical American ice cream and especially chocolate was outstanding. Great value too and the view is unbeatable.

    Simple ice cream shop. With a good amount of flavors. What makes it different it's underneath the Brooklyn bridge. Right by the water beautiful views and great photo. Little pricey but do it once.

    If you like ice cream, sprinkles and to sit by the water with the best view of NYC this is the place. Lovely ice cream, just get a napkin.. you don't want sticky hands!

    No pretense; just some good ol' fashioned ice cream with a great view. Featured on our list of Top 10 Ice Creams in NYC, this is the quintessential experience that every New Yorker should have.

    'waterfront scoop shop w/limited menu that features classics like chocolate, coffee, strawberry, and butter pecan. Our tip? Take a cone to go—the views from the Brooklyn promenade can't be beat.'

    Chocolate Chocolate Chunk is great. The lines are long but the ice cream makes up for it and the location is great.

    Hit the caah-only pier-front factory for a look behind the scenes of one of New York’s most beloved ice cream brands, or take a handpacked pint or oversize banana split home for yourself.

    Definitely worth a visit if you are in the area. The options are limited, but very good. Try the coffee and vanilla chocolate chunk. You will thank me later.

    Sometimes simple is best, their neapolitan ice cream flavors don't need any bells or whistles because they are that good. We've never tasted fresher strawberry ice cream in our lives.

    If the line is too long, get your ice cream at the small stand across from the building. It's the same ice cream! Peaches and Creme :)

    Tired from a day of walking all over NYC? Get some of the best ice cream the city has to offer and chillax with your crew for a bit before walking again! Strawberry with waffle cone, can't go wrong.

    The vanilla ice cream is delicious - sweet, but not overpowering. The strawberry is extremely fresh. Great for the NYC summer nights!

    Everything is great but the shakes are amongst the best. Be ready to wait during summer but with it.

    Ice cream just like any other ice cream and is very expensive, most likely due to location

    Get two scoops: vanilla chocolate chunk & chocolate chocolate chunk. It's a little wordy, but damn it tastes like summer. Hop on a water taxi and enjoy.
