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.

If you are staying in Manhattan, take a walk over the Manhattan Bridge and check out DUMBO. There is a park by the water and plenty of places to eat and walk around. It's a cute area but beware if you are driving...cobblestone streets! What a pain!

Expected more, but it was right after New Year's and seemed a little dead. Lots of things were closed.

I Love Dumbo in The Summer, Spring and Fall. Its right under the Brooklyn Bridge and you get the wonderful views and breeze off the water. There is also a stop for the water taxi here so you can make this a stop on your way to do sightseeing manhattan or while sight seeing Manhattan on the water taxi, stop here. The have a great pizza shop down here that always has a line that's a block long but worth it. There is a really great ice cream parlor right by the water taxi which also has a line but is well worth the wait. You have two great parks (both of which have children play grounds) There are also great restaurants down in dumbo and in one of the parks there is a cool outdoor wine bar (not good for the winter). My favorite place to warm up is Jacque Torre (sp?). They have the best chocolates there but the thing I like the most there is their Hot Drinking Chocolate. They have one called Wicked Hot Chocolate. Its a blend of drinking chocolate with cardamon and other spices. Its just yummy. Dumbo is a great place to visit.

Lovely place to take a stroll and check out the galleries. Go for 'open studios' days, if you can! Cobblestone streets, a few shops, a few very nice cafes too.
