DUMBO: the avant-garde NY

A tiny neighbourhood located just north of the Brooklyn Bridge, Dumbo is one of the artistic and trendy district of Brooklyn NYC. This area has industrial warehouses, vintage loft spaces and a unique view of Lower Manhattan and New York’s beautiful bridges.

Dumbo, an acronym for “Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass”, has been transformed, during the past few decades, from an industrial district into a trendy area with fashionable boutiques, art galleries, bookstore, bars and restaurants. Cobblestone streets, green space and historic red-brick buildings make this district  unique.

Visitors and locals enjoy coming here to try hip restaurants and find alternative and unique shops like the Powerhouse Arena, a creative gallery, book store and events space.
