For a glimpse of all things Brooklyn, head over to DUMBO, “Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass.” There, you’ll find cobblestone streets and revamped warehouses, home to the many independent designer boutiques, art studios, technology companies, luxurious restaurants and hip cafes of DUMBO. Feel fully immersed in Brooklyn as you experience the antique architecture that hearkens back to New York City’s industrial past, infused with contemporary ambitions and values.
Food, Shopping, Entertainment, & Views for All
Check out the up-and-coming scene at Empire Stores, home to the newer start-up companies of DUMBO. For a more traditional vibe, gather at St. Ann’s Warehouse, a longstanding arts organization now located in the repurposed Tobacco Warehouse. Not only does St. Ann’s still offer the theatrical entertainment it’s best known for, but it’s also worth a visit just to admire the historical architecture of the building and lovely views from the garden.
Additionally, make sure to bring your appetite when you visit DUMBO to experience the opulent food choices, spanning from classic Americana to Italian, from Eastern Mediterranean to Argentinian-Korean, and everything between!
What makes DUMBO so special, aside from its top-quality products and experiences, are the views of Lower Manhattan visible from nearly any venue located in DUMBO. Even the kids can enjoy the views from the vintage carousel located on the East River’s waterfront.
Since arriving in Brooklyn, the DUMBO House, a branch of the international SohoHouse, has greatly contributed to the inspirational revitalization of this Brooklyn attraction. Located on the edge of the East River between the Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridges, the DUMBO House offers fun and food or all ages, all in one convenient venue.
“Dumbo, Brooklyn is a must-see staple of NYC and a beautiful part of the city to hang out in, take pictures, or just do a casual walk and see what you find.”
