Dumbo is a neighbourhood in New York that connects Brooklyn to Manhattan. DUMBO stands for Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass. Which, like most neighbourhood acronyms, sums it up perfectly. From here you can quickly take the stairs up to the Brooklyn bridge and casually stroll right over to Manhattan.
The F train stops a block from the Manhattan Bridge Overpass (just get off at York Street), for the 2 and 3 trains you should take the Clark Street stop and with the A and C trains you are just a short walk away when you get of at Highstreet. The subway is by far the easiest way to get there, but the most glamorous way to arrive is definitely with the East River Ferry, which departs from Pier 11 located in downtown Manhattan.
The best view of Manhattan is at the Brooklyn Bridge Park which also is an amazing place to relax. You can literally escape the buzz of the city without having to leave New York. Make sure to stay until the evening and experience the incredible lights of Manhattan in all it glory.
It is no wonder that Dumbo is known for its art. You can basically find each other street filled with arts and crafts. So if you are looking for a great day of shopping and relaxing, but you don’t want to miss out on sightseeing, definitely go
