Dumbo: Brooklyn's Vibrant Waterfront Neighborhood

Nestled along the waterfront between the Brooklyn Bridge and Manhattan Bridge, is the vibrant Brooklyn neighborhood known as, DUMBO. With the acronym stemming from "Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass," this trendy waterfront area has a thriving art scene and nightlife. Just two decades ago, DUMBO was filled with warehouses and left relatively deserted. Today, it boasts swanky loft apartments, innovative restaurants, art studios and designer boutiques. Getting to DUMBO is a breeze, as the minute you cross the Brooklyn Bridge, you are there. Multiple subway lines run through or you can take the ferry from the East River. Brooklyn Bridge Park runs through parts of DUMBO, offering many fun things to do including Jane's Carousel and the popular, Smorgasburg. Although this neighborhood only spans a few NYC blocks, there is plenty to do and see in this walkable and funky neighborhood.
