Van Leeuwen's Is Opening a Shop in Greenpoint
Last summer, Van Leeuwen's Laura O'Neill told us that the ice cream truck was looking to spawn a brick and mortar incarnation, possibly in Nolita. But they've apparently decided to head to the other side of the East River.
Greenpointers has learned, from Pete Van Leeuwen himself, that the company's storefront will be in Greenpoint, right next door to the Manhattan Inn on Manhattan Avenue. The store, which will serve ice cream, pastries, and Intelligentsia/Counter Culture coffee, should open sometime in early February.
