Trip Planner: USA / New York State / Brooklyn / Dumbo
Short for "Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass," Dumbo is a bustling community on the shore of the East River. Thanks to the efforts of Joy Glidden, founder of of the DUMBO arts center and co-founder of the DUMBO Art Under the Bridge Festival, as well as other urban developers, the once industrial area was successfully transformed into a waterfront hub for artists and entrepreneurs. The rich arts and culture scene includes everything from small galleries to large performance venues, as well as book and music stores. The neighborhood also features trendy shops, bars, and restaurants, including great pizza places. As you wander between local businesses, many of which are housed in revamped industrial buildings, take in views of the Brooklyn Bridge and the Manhattan skyline. The relatively small neighborhood is easy to explore on foot, and it is accessible from Manhattan via subway and ferry.

There is so much to do in this area. Good restaurants, beautiful views along the river and when walking across the bridges. Parking can be a problem, but we drove into Dumbo early and found parking...

Such a cool spot near the Manhattan Bridge. It’s such a lively place with a “flea market” of sorts with incredible knickknacks, records, and food. Definitely come here to grab a picture of the incredibly famous view of the Manhattan Bridge between two stunning brown buildings. When the sun shines on the buildings, the view is breathtaking!
