Dumbo, an acronym for Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass, has quickly become one of Brooklyn’s hottest neighborhoods, appealing to New Yorkers with its raw, industrial architecture, picturesque cobblestone streets, relaxing waterfront and spectacular views of Manhattan. Formerly a manufacturing district, the neighborhood was colonized by a mix of artists, musicians, entrepreneurs, and creative types who converted its many vintage warehouse spaces into luxurious residential lofts and tech startup offices. This in turn helped spark a development boom in the neighborhood which led to the opening of many chic boutiques, trendy galleries, and a bevy of new bars and restaurants, transforming Dumbo from a lightly populated commercial district into the hip, flourishing residential neighborhood it is today, much like Soho and Tribeca before it.
