OddFellows to Open its 5th Ice Cream Shop on Wednesday
OddFellows is a few days from cutting the proverbial ribbon on its latest location. The corner of Mott and East Houston Streets.
The Brooklyn-based ice cream shop has been readying the space for the last couple months in the second half of what was formerly Second Time Around. (The other half of the store went to retail refugee City Hats.)
Signage is now in place at 55 East Houston, including painted marquee and requisite ad mural on the Mott Street facade.
OddFellows confirms that this new outpost – its fifth in the Five Boroughs – opens to the public this Wednesday (April 11).
Longtimers may remember that this corner previously housed a bodega called La Cocina Deli. It was pushed out at the end of 2011, and replaced by a succession of boutiques. At the time, locals mourned the loss of this lifeblood and penned their anger on the site itself. OddFellows and City Hats are together the latest torch-bearers here.
