We are pleased to announce that the Brooklyn Farmacy & Soda Fountain has signed on as a Foundation sponsor for all Brooklyn Studio Tours events. If you do not know them, you need to go visit them on Henry Street IMMEDIATELY! Old fashioned egg creams, unbelievable ice cream treats and an atmosphere that takes you right back to the “Hey Days” of the 1920′s.
We are excited to have the Farmacy as a main sponsor and given their location, they are a prime spot for a mid studio tour treat – there will be a few artist spots very close by; including right at the back walls of the Farmacy! Yes – they are also an artist location – look for old time, antique nostalgic Brooklyn architectural photography by Daniel Marino.
What else to tell – OH YES! Stay tuned and check back on our Calendar of Events page leading up to the tour. The Farmacy has mentioned offering special discounts on treats when you stop by on May 19 and 20!
The Brooklyn Farmacy & Soda Fountain is a family owned business, located in a beautifully restored 1920s pharmacy in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn. The abandoned corner storefront stood as a neighborhood mystery for over 12 years before being discovered first by Peter Freeman, and then by the Discovery Channel for a reality T.V. construction renovation series. Referred to as “The Farm,” by regulars, the Brooklyn Farmacy & Soda Fountain has been heralded as the ‘heart of the neighborhood’, and has played a significant role in the revived interest in American Soda Fountains. The Farmacy’s motto: Fresh, Friendly, Local applies to its seasonal menu of traditional soda fountain offerings, and its grocery shelves lined with artisanal foods made in Brooklyn. The Brooklyn Farmacy has appeared in numerous publications including New York Times, Time Out New York, NY Magazine, The Huffington Post, Overflow, Inbibe and Utne Reader. Please see our press page for a list of press mentions, personal blog writings and videos about the Farmacy.
