Van Leeuwen’s Ludlow Street Ice Cream Shop is Now Open
More artisanal, Instagram-ready ice cream is now for sale on Ludlow Street, swapping strings for cones.
Indeed, Brooklyn-based Van Leeuwen debuted at 172 Ludlow last Saturday, taking the place of the onetime stalwart Ludlow Guitars. Until now, the space had been a dormancy in the wake of their relocation to the South Street Seaport.
In one quick action, Van Leeuwen is now part of the frozen treat scene in Hell Square, which already counts il Laboratorio del Gelato, 10Below, New Territories, and Black Tap among its ranks.
Founded in 2008, Van Leeuwen boasts seven ice cream outposts in its stable, aside from their formidable truck brigade.
