Neighborhood Spotlight | Dumbo

With or without the Brooklyn Flea, Dumbo is abuzz with exciting and exclusive opportunities every season. Rumor has it that those artists who gave the borough its “uncool” nickname in the 1970s did so in an anti-marketing effort to protect it from development and gentrification. Go figure!

Serving as the borough’s unofficial welcoming post for Manhattanites crossing over into Brooklyn, Dumbo tempts them to go no further. The first of many reasons to stay is the ambiance. With cobblestone streets and old train tracks that recall the neighborhood’s 18th century industrial past, Dumbo offers some of the greatest views of Manhattan of all time, especially when the sun sets.

When in Dumbo, there are more than a few must-sees and must-dos. Check out our top picks below!
