While other Brooklyn Bridge Park food vendors are expected to open in July, Grub Street reports that Blue Marble Ice Cream may not be ready to scoop until August:
Grub Street: This is what the new Blue Marble stand in Brooklyn Bridge Park will look like, but don’t expect to get a cone until the end of July, or even August. (Navigating city park permits is challenging.) “It’s a little more substantial and cooler-looking [than a cart], and had more of a presence,” says co-owner Alexis Miesen. “We’re constructing a cool little structure composed of shipping pallets as a nod to the history of the area at Pier 1.” Find it on the southwest corner of the pier facing the Statue of Liberty. (Think of the cones-as-torches photo possibilities!) A standard cart will also serve ice cream at Pier 6.
