The acronym DUMBO stands for “Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass” and describes the old industrial district along the Brooklyn Waterfront between the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges.
Chief among DUMBO’s many assets are its dramatic, unrestrained views of the Manhattan skyline. St. Ann’s new warehouse at 29 Jay Street is just blocks from the riverbank and Brooklyn Bridge Park, and offers a stunning perspective of the Manhattan Bridge.
Beyond the waterside park, the cobblestone streets are full of surprises: a chocolatier, art studios and galleries, furniture makers and retail sellers, an ice cream factory and stained glass watertower, and even a restored, vintage carousel.
Don’t eat before you come to St. Ann’s Warehouse. There’s great food in DUMBO within walking distance! Click on RESTAURANTS, BARS, & CAFES for more information.
