If you aren’t already counting down the days until summer, the news from Brooklyn Bridge Park regarding its upcoming summer concessions will get you ready. This summer, Luke’s Lobster, No. 7 Sub, Ample Hills Creamery and Fornino: The Art & Science of Pizza will open throughout the park. Luke’s Lobster and No. 7 Sub will operate in the Smokestack Building under the Brooklyn Bridge seven days a week. No. 7 Sub will serve sandwiches like Turkey Meatloaf, Zucchini Parm, and Roasted Delicata Squash, as well as juices and breakfast sandwiches. Fornino will be located at Pier Six in the space previously occupied by Bark Hot Dogs. (This isn’t the same owner as the recently shuttered Fornino in Park Slope.) They’ll sell pizza, sandwiches, frozen yogurt, snacks and beverages, as well as serve beer on the rooftop beer garden. Ample Hills Creamery will be at the new concession stand located at Pier Five. They’ll start scooping eight flavors on Memorial Day weekend. These guys will join the previous summer vendors, which include Calexico Carne Asada, Blue Marble Ice Cream, and Brooklyn Bridge Wine Bar. Not to mention that Smorgasburg opens up on April 7th in the Tobacco Warehouse too.

Although obviously in need of work to turn it into living space, this has got to be one of the coolest properties for sale we’ve ever seen. There’s tons of curb appeal (or will be, pending a fresh paint job), beamed ceilings, arched windows and doors, diagonal floors and three skylights in this seemingly untouched […]
