DUMBO

Cool factorYoung crowd

DUMBO, an acronym for Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass, is a Brooklyn neighborhood where artists and yuppies collide.

The residential DUMBO apartments are occupied primarily by professionals, aside from a penthouse where Mos Def resides. The warehouse work spaces still host many artists and double as storage spaces for Manhattanites and businesses.

DUMBO borders the East River and extends into Vinegar Hill.
