Good Food Grocery Store in Sunset Park, Brooklyn

There are so many things that we love about this #storefront including the missing letter "D" from the #signage, the #handpainted portion of the #sign, the bubble gum machines outside and even the pay phone. Analog photo from 2005 appears in our book "Store Front: The Disappearing Face of New York".

Van Leeuwen Artisan Ice Cream in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.

@vanleeuwenicecream was started in the Spring of 2008 out of an #icecream truck. They make all of their ice cream 🍦 from scratch in #Greenpoint out of fresh milk 🍼 and cream, cane sugar, pure cocoa butter and organic carob bean. They also make #vegan ice cream flavors. We not only love cooling off with their delicious ice cream but also are fans of their #neonsign!
