I had seen this image and just had to find where it was taken. If you are walking from Manhattan over the Brooklyn Bridge just follow it to the end and then take the stairs on the left of the path at the end. This will land you right on Washington St. that takes you to this area known as... More

This is one of the most iconic images in the city, a glimpse of Manhattan bridge at the end of a street. In order to see this stunning view for yourself, go to Washington street in the DUMBO area of Brooklyn!

Dumbo which is an acronyms for, "down under the Manhattan Bridge overpass". Actually it is a great spot to see the Brooklyn Bridge as well. The transformation of the Brooklyn Piers is amazing. Great new restaurants and well as old and established ones. Go see Jane's Carousel.

I have to say Dumbo was an amazing place to explore! I almost don't know where to start. We decided to have dinner and walk the Brooklyn Bridge. On our way to dinner it was about that time when everyone is coming home from work and school. I love to people watch and Dumbo, like many parts of NYC, is... More

You’ll be amiss to make a trip to New York without spending a day at DUMBO. Short for Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass, a neighbourhood in Brooklyn between Brooklyn Bridge and Manhattan Bridge on the East River. Right exactly in this spot is where Peter Parker met up with long time friend Harry Osborn to catch up in The... More

An old and really pretty area with cafes and designer stores. The buildings are absolutely charming! An expensive area but worth a visit! Try one of the area's many (hipster) cafes that offer proper brewed coffee and organic sweet and savory eats.

I had read reviews of the area and was keen to visit. Thanks to everyone for writing about this area. Easy to find and walk was easy enough. Not flat if you have problems. Toilets were accessible and plenty of eating houses. It was a great view of the skyline and bridges but would love to have gone back at... More

Dumbo, what can I say apart from its a must visit ? Everyone walks/ bikes/ crosses the Brooklyn Bridge right ? Well, just when you cross, Dumbo is right there. It has good food, good view, good vibe, ambiance and all that. Why wouldn't you want to visit it?
