Hit Prospect Heights ice cream shop Ample Hills Creamery opens its massive new outpost in Gowanus at noon today. This is quite possibly the biggest ice cream shop in the city, with three floors dedicated to the making and consuming of frozen treats. It has a big counter and plenty of booths on the ground floor, a party space with an ice-cream-churning bike upstairs, and a rooftop deck with Adirondack chairs and a wide open view of Brooklyn. The space also houses a big new ice cream production facility, where owner Brian Smith and the Ample Hills team will turn out a rotating selection of 24 flavors like Mexican hot chocolate, peppermint pattie, and the ever-popular salted crack caramel from scratch. Take a look around:
