Ice cream for lunch. That’s the late summer mantra that has gotten us through these last few, painfully muggy weeks. Brooklyn is awash in ice cream, whether you’re talking a straightforward strawberry cone from the Uncle Louie G.’s on your corner, or the flavor explosion that is the salted crack caramel ice cream at Ample Hills. Dairy sensitivities aside (in which case, head to Van Leeuwen for a vegan scoop instead), you’d be a fool not to dive in and sample a few while the weather is still warm.
In celebration of frozen confections we talked the nice folks at OddFellows Ice Cream on Kent Avenue in Williamsburg to let photographer Spencer Starnes hang around for a few hours while they made a few batches of ice cream, and some boozy popsicles to boot. OddFellows pasteurizes all their dairy in-house for an exceptionally creamy and delicious base. From there, the flavor combinations really know no bounds, and the shop has served more than 200 different scoops since they opened in 2013. We dare you not to run out and get a cone after taking a peek at these pictures.
