The timing couldn’t be better. Brooklyn-based ice cream chain Van Leeuwen is expanding to at 448 Amsterdam Avenue (81st-82nd) just as the ice cream season really gets going.
The company, which is known to be vegan-friendly, has said previously that they’d like to open in May, although it’s unclear if they’ll actually open their doors before the end of the month. They haven’t responded to our latest request for comment on the timing.
Van Leeuwen is in the midst of a large expansion throughout the city. Here are their flavors.
