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.

A charming wedding venue. Loved the old brownstones. A very hip area and loved the idea of being under the Manhattan Bridge.

Went in July. Restored historic carousel is lovely. Walked around to see some interesting shops. Park is cute and the view is outstanding. Had coffee and cookies at One Girl's cookies. The area had damage from the storm but by all accounts is coming back. Take the water taxi and/or walk the bridge. A fun little trip.

We walked across the Brooklyn Bridge (not that strenuous) and turned left and under the bridge to a small renovated neighborhood called DUMBO?

It's easy walking but not smooth for strollers or wheelchairs.

Some upscale clothing, art, etc. It's OK but needs to grow and in that respect, should be visited.

Take a walk off of the Brooklyn Bridge and look UP! Let the inmense metal structures dazzle you. Look at the Manhattan skyline from the shore. Check out the wonderfully restored Jane's Carousel. Stroll through the neigbourhood and find just that thing you have been searchinh for the whole trip.... And ofcourse there's plenty of restaurant options in Dumbo. Depending on your point of origin, Dumbo might be somewhat difficult to reach. But it is worth the trip!
