History: An industrial area in the late nineteenth century, the western part of the neighborhood was called Fulton Landing. As factories closed and the neighborhood grew more residential, in the late 1970s, many artists sought out its large, affordable, live-in loft studios. Residents then christened the neighborhood DUMBO-an acronym forDownUnder theManhattanBridgeOverpass-hoping that the odd, seemingly unmarketable name would keep it the best-kept secret in Brooklyn.
Activities: Today, DUMBO is known for its many tech start-ups as well as art galleries, fantastic eateries, and unique shops. Catch an innovative theater performance or a concert at St. Ann’s Warehouse. Immerse yourself in classical music at Bargemusic, a one-of-a-kind floating concert hall. Nearby Brooklyn Bridge Park hosts a wealth of activities, from biking and boating to outdoor movies and yoga classes, from Jane’s Carousel to a Pop-Up Pool in the summer.
