You may ask what does DUMBO stand for? It stands for Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass. It is under the Manhattan Bridge, Brooklyn Bridge and next to is the Brooklyn Bridge Park. Be prepare to do lots of walking and bring a bottle of water.
In the part of the neighborhood everywhere is artwork, lots of buildings are transforming and in the process of rebuilding. Go while it still have the old feelings.
This part of town can be get crowd. Even the locals like to come here and hang out. I went both weekend and weekday. Weekday early morning is the best, not too people. And look out for professional photo shooting. We spotted a few women and young children fashion photo shooting.
