    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.'

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
