Mark Thompson, who first opened Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory in a Fulton Ferry fireboat house, dreams of one day having an ice-cream parlor in every borough. With the opening of his Greenpoint store, not to mention his presence at the Best of Brooklyn Hall of Fame Food Court at Floyd Bennett Air Field, he’s got Kings County well covered. The new digs were most recently a Caribbean restaurant called Bleu Drawes, and before that a glass factory, and the remote location, abutting Newtown Creek, has the same peripheral, cinematic feel as his East River flagship. Thompson learned his craft at Martoni’s, a small family-run operation in Pennsylvania, and his eggless product is known for its purity of flavor and creamy-yet-light texture. For now, he’s serving his eight signature flavors, all made on premises and available in banana splits, shakes, and sundaes.
