Dirty

This place is so disgusting. Dirty and filled with trashy people. It used to be a nice place to visit but it’s not overfilled with trashy New Yorkers and tourists. Oh and occasionally you’ll see a couples photo shoot. Not sure why this place is so special. My bathroom sink has more charm then this place.

I've been longing to visit that area and see it for myself and take many photos. I was not disappointed. The views are great and it is a very peaceful area at Pebble beach viewing the city. A lovely experience.

Gorgeous views

Sunday flea market in DUMBO is a great time, and just walking along the neighborhood taking in the beautiful skyline of Manhattan is worth the trip over. Grab a lovely dinner in one of the restaurants on the waterfront to get the full effect.

Well if you are walking the Brooklyn bridge you should swing down to Dumbo.. nice cobble streets with noteworthy shops to eat at.. a few have been around for years.. very clean and felt safe as well.great views. Not much parking. Plan 3 hours to do a lap around the streets and a stop at Janes carousel

Instagram worthy

The most Instagram worthy spot to get a photo of the iconic Manhattan Bridge is located at the intersection of Washington Street and Water Street.

We walked through the park on the promenade by the water. Very nice and peaceful. Weather was spectacular as well. Lovely area for families to go. Biking is also allowed in the area.

When you see all the iconic shoots here, what you don’t see is how quaint and beautiful this neighborhood truly is. Lovely little piece of Brooklyn.

Instagram spot not to be missed!
Dec 2019
Must see! Must snap! Dumbo is just cool! Not to be missed, every time we visit NY, we come here and take the same exact picture! It's just to remember that day we got married in New York, took the subway, and came to Dumbo to take this pic on a sunny day. The street was packed but we managed to have a good one and put it in our bedroom.
