My Second Favorite Neon Sign in Bay Ridge
Hinsch's is a Bay Ridge institution-- an old-timey soda fountain with surly waitresses (no waiters that I saw) of a certain age.
The food is about average -- Paul's had a hamburger and I once ordered a waffle -- but the ice cream is the star of the show. One sweltering afternoon we sprung for the $10 sundae -- three scoops of our choosing topped upon sliced bananas and a layer of some kind of pound cake, smothered with whip cream, sprinkles and cherries. Yum.
