Where To Start
Depending on your interests and tastes, a visit to Dumbo can land you just about anywhere. We’re talking atop a carved horse on Jane’s Carousel, watching an avant-garde masterpiece at St. Ann’s Warehouse, grabbing a thin-crust slice of heaven at Grimaldi’s or Juliana’s, or picnicking on a quiet corner of Brooklyn Bridge Park.
The Place to Be
At the epicenter of the neighborhood, Empire Stores is hard to miss. Swing by to catch top-notch live music, sip a signature Negroni at Cecconi’s, and enjoy a pre- or post-shopping bite at the Time Out Market food hall or one of the many fine-dining establishments. And while you’re here, don’t miss the rooftop garden for the awe-inspiring view of the New York Harbor and Manhattan skyline. Wherever you find yourself, you can bet that this destination will not disappoint.
From Manufacturing Port to Urban Mecca
An acronym for Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass, Dumbo received its moniker back in the 1970s from local residents and artists hoping the “uncool” nickname might help keep the historic waterfront neighborhood a secret. Well, the secret’s out—and for good reason. For years, Dumbo has had a thriving art, culture, and foodie scene. And with the development of Brooklyn Bridge Park—an 85-acre sprawl of lushly landscaped greenery, six piers, adventure playgrounds, miles of bike and walking paths, and world-class recreational spaces along the East River waterfront—and the revitalization of Empire Stores, Dumbo continues to up its cool factor and earn its place as the most must-see, must-live, must-selfie neighborhood in Brooklyn.
Like all of Brooklyn, Dumbo is ever evolving. Wander the Belgian-block streets. Follow the well-trodden paths to the docks. Stare starry-eyed at the view in every direction, day or night.
