Brooklyn's DUMBO is a neighborhood with an acronym standing for "Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass". Originally, DUMBO was an area with just a few pioneers setting up homes in the former warehouses and factories, but has since gone from a somewhat desolate area to a neighborhood with some of the city's most coveted NY apartments.


DUMBO is bordered to the north by John Street (and the East River), to the south by Sands Street (and Downtown Brooklyn), to the east by Old Fulton Street (and Brooklyn Heights), to the west by Bridge Street (and Vinegar Hill).


Along with being a historic district, most of the neighborhood's beautiful homes apartments offer jaw-dropping views of the Manhattan skyline and Brooklyn Bridge. DUMBO has also emerged as true New York City cultural center, and its office spaces are rented by an unusually high proportion of design and creative professionals, as well as web-based companies.


DUMBO is home to the great St. Ann's Warehouse, a non-profit cultural institution that specializes in cutting-edge theater and performances of all kinds, as well as the newly-relocated Galapagos Arts Space, and more than a few for-profit galleries, all clustered in the officially designated Historic District near the old Fulton Landing. Also right there is Bargemusic, a floating concert hall that features excellent classical music shows. Narrow cobble-stone streets and magnificent old warehouses are the norm here, adding to both the charm and the sense of distance—psychological rather than physical—from the rest of the city.


Residents of  DUMBO apartments have two amazing, adjoining parks to choose from: the Empire-Fulton Ferry State Park (it's difficult to overstate how terrific the views are from here) and the brand-new Brooklyn Bridge Park, complete with wide, sunny lawn, biking and strolling esplanade, and high-design playground. The commute into Manhattan is an easy one, either via subway or Water Taxi. Other attractions in DUMBO include a bunch of first-rate restaurants, designy furniture and houseware stores, a Jacques Torres Chocolate shop (get a cookie), an Almondine Bakery (get a croissant), and the famous Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory (get anything).
