Real Estate Office Replacing Scoopz on Fifth

Scoopz Ice Cream, the seasonal ice cream shop on Fifth between Douglass and Degraw Streets, has closed for good and will soon be replaced by a real estate office. When I ducked my head in earlier this afternoon, it appeared as if construction on the new space is nearly complete.

Scoopz traditionally closes for the winter, so it was tough to tell whether the shop was permanently shuttered. It is, though, and a construction worker inside told me that the company taking over is called Millennium Real Estate (no relation to New Millennium Realty, though, off Seventh Avenue). The only real estate company I could find by that name led to this site, but nobody answered the phone when I called.

Scoopz always took a backseat to the more popular Uncle Louie G's, which now essentially has a monoploy on neighborhood ice cream shops.

One more real estate office! Just what the neighborhood needs.

That stretch of 5th Avenue has almost zero real estate offices. Certainly better than that god awful scoopz.

What do we need chicken underwear? Are their not enough vacant storefronts for everything you want to see open in Park Slope?

....and will serve better ice cream. Zing!

Speaking of better ice cream, Sky Ice seems to need major support. Empty on a Friday night. Good food. Good ice cream. No reason for that.

Scoopz. The service at Scoopz was utterly horrible and their product sucked. Given they were on the main strip unlike Ungle Louie G's they could have made an effort. Always seemed like kids running it and having no clue how to run a business. Nothing shocking.
