Owner description: Dumbo, an acronym for Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass, is a neighborhood in the New York City borough of Brooklyn. It encompasses two sections: one located between the Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridges, which connect Brooklyn to Manhattan across the East River, and another that continues east from the Manhattan Bridge to the Vinegar Hill area.

Before (or after) you walk over the Brooklyn Bridge hang out and explore DUMBO. There are many new shops and some older places to check out.

Over the Brooklyn bridge is a new park called the Waterfront park. It runs along the waterfront directly across from ground zero and lower Manhattan. This park is fantastic, it has everything, long promenades, several children's playgrounds for several ages of children, benches for sitting, water gardens, grass, rolling hills, a carousel which has a housing designed by Norman Foster so it is exquisitely beautiful, it is a glass box. The ride is $2.00. Brides come to be photographed because the back drop of the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges is so dramatic it makes the perfect photograph. Often the are two or three brides at once and thus they become the attraction. I like to go bride viewing as well as walk thru the park! there is an ice creamery that is to die for and usually a line. And there is a small ferry for rides across the river. Wow, plus you can see the Statue of Liberty.

This area has a GREAT little spot to capture a photo of the Manhattan bridge with the Empire State viewable through the piers.

One of my favorite area restaurants Gran Electrica is in this neighborhood, along with a great shop called Brooklyn Industries. Great place to get some local goods. Bags, clothes and the like.

Loved the water route and views it took for us to get here.
Walked around, didn't really know where to go so we ended back at the parks. What a nice place. Before we left we decided to get ice cream at the Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory. Good God!!! The chocolate chocolate chip was amazing to the last drip on a hot August afternoon.

What is to not like about Dumbo? The art, spectacular views of the city, boats,carousel, restaurants, hideaway bars, Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory, the beautiful defining structure of the Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridges, helicopters surfing the skyline and the rumbling of the subway...a haven for photography! I can go on and on but you gotta see it for yourself.
