Summers in Brooklyn are sweltering! It’s not the surface of the sun hot—but it sure can feel like it. 363 Bond Street residents can seek relief from the rising temps by taking a dip in our rooftop pool.
Yet, there are times when you have to seek relief from summer’s heat with something extra special. Something that’s refreshingly cold, can be enjoyed most anywhere, and is incredibly tasty: Ice cream!
When you want a tasty ice cream treat, Brooklyn is the place to be! We’re home to lots of great shops, carts and food trucks that specialize in all kinds of frozen treats. But there’s one ice cream shop that holds a special place in our community’s heart: Ample Hills Creamery
Let’s take a closer look at one of the best ice cream shops in Brooklyn!
It Started As A Cart
Brooklyn loves scrappy underdogs who work their way up to the big time! Ample Hills Creamery is one such example.
In its humble beginnings, Ample Hills Creamery was a push cart that conducted business on Brooklyn’s busy streets. As that cart made its way around the neighborhood, so did the word about its delicious ice cream.
A Brooklyn Success Story
Flash forward to 2011. The little push cart that could evolved into a storefront business. Opening its doors just in time for Memorial Day weekend, the first Ample Hills Creamery shop was greeted with an almost nonstop parade of customers. This little scoop shop was so popular with its Prospect Park neighborhood that it ran out of ice cream in just 4 days. Since the Ample Hills crew churned their own ice cream, they had to close for a few days so they could restock their supply.
Within a few years, Ample Hills Creamery opened additional scoop shops in Brooklyn (including a Gowanus location). Word continued to spread and soon new shops opened throughout the state. Apple Hills Creamery’s reputation for seriously tasty ice cream led to locations in New Jersey and all the way across the country in California!
Ice Cream Anytime and Anywhere
Brooklyn’s favorite ice cream providers soon decided that it was time to share their treats with everyone. By opening and operating New York’s largest ice cream production facility, Ample Hills Creamery supplies stores and supermarkets everywhere with their tasty creations. Fans can even order their ice cream online if they don’t have easy access to the treats in their neighborhoods.
Brooklynites are always proud when one of our local businesses does well. And Ample Hills Creamery has earned their reputation as one of the best Brooklyn ice cream shops!
363 Bond Street is happy to have an Ample Hills Creamery scoop shop just minutes away from our door. When our residents want a tasty ice cream treat, they can stroll down to their favorite spot for some refreshment. Or they can hit a local grocery to stock their fridge with their favorite flavors.
