Brooklyn brings back soda fountain
GO to the intersection of Henry Street and Sackett Street in Brooklyn’s Carroll Gardens, walk into the little turquoise-colored shop on the corner, and step back in time about 90 years.
Welcome to The Farmacy, home of old-time fountain sodas, ice cream sundaes, homemade baked goods, and of course, Brooklyn’s famous ‘egg creams‘ (which contain neither eggs nor cream).
Down your tasty treat of choice right there in the store, a carefully restored pharmacy that dates from the 1920s, complete with the antique wooden shelving, leather-topped stools and gleaming tiled floor.
You’ll swear Babe Ruth might just swagger in.
This hip little place has attracted a devoted following of Brooklynites who like to stop in for the special Saturday morning donuts or even the occasional live band in the evening.
You might even call it the quintessential neighborhood establishment.
Old fashioned? Definitely, and that’s just how we like it.
