The cup and/or cone people from the tremendously popular Prospect Heights ice cream parlor Ample Hills Creamery open their second year-round location today at 305 Nevins Street at Union Street in Gowanus. The two-story, 3,600-square-foot shop has 24 rotating flavors of ice cream and sorbet, including its famous Salted Crack Carmel and almost-famous It Came From Gowanus flavors, plus floats, sundaes, and more. On the ground flour, there's a play space and an open production area where customers and passerby's on Union Street can watch the scratch-made ice cream process. There's also a 25-seat outdoor rooftop deck for those wishing to eat their frozen treats al fresco. The shop is open Sunday through Thursday, noon to 11 p.m., and Friday through Saturday, noon to midnight. [Related]
