This incredibly scenic neighborhood has nothing to do with a floppy-eared elephant. DUMBO (Down Under Manhattan Bridge Overpass) sits waterfront right along the East River in the northwest part of Brooklyn. Following suit with most of Brooklyn, Dumbo has undergone recent renovations and developments. The result is a boom of Dumbo Real Estate: luxury condos and lofts that incorporate the phenomenal city views.
Dumbo - What to Do
Choose from a variety of neighborhood cafes, historic pizza parlors, and so much more. Dumbo has been an artists haven for decades, sprouting from an old manufacturing zone into a scenic and affordable neighborhood artists could draw inspiration from. Take part in outdoor art festivals, sculpture shows, and film festivals as there are a lot of things to do. Check out some of the independent bookstores and designer boutiques, all within walking distance.
Dumbo - Transportation
With the convenience of being located right next to the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges, living in Dumbo means a 5-minute drive into the heart of Manhattan. Take the East River Ferry into downtown Manhattan, visit a CitiBike kiosk for the best way to zoom around, or take one of the easily accessible subway lines to get to where you need to go. Available lines include the F train, 2 and 3 trains, and the A and C trains.
