Before we leave DUMBO (Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass), here’s a collection of photos of the neighborhood. The first few photos should give you a good idea of where the neighborhood got the name. As you near the Brooklyn Bridge (Down Under the Brooklyn Bridge Overpass?), the neighborhood becomes more polished and complete. Under the Manhattan Bridge and further north it’s still a work in progress. Construction everywhere. Great places to eat, some fun shopping, plus Brooklyn Bridge Park and spectacular views across the East River. Next stop: 2nd Avenue Deli.


Antes de dejar DUMBO (Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass) [Debajo del paso elevado del puente de Manhattan], aquí hay una colección de fotos del vecindario. Las primeras fotos deberían darle una buena idea de dónde obtuvo el nombre el barrio. A medida que se acerca al Puente de Brooklyn, el vecindario se vuelve más refinado y completo. Debajo del puente de Manhattan y más al norte, todavía es un trabajo en progreso. Construcción por todos lados. Excelentes lugares para comer, algunas compras divertidas, además de Brooklyn Bridge Park (Parque del Puente de Brooklyn) y vistas espectaculares del East River. Próxima parada: 2nd Avenue Deli (Delicatessen 2da Avenida).

      I’ve read mixed reviews. It looks like fun and it’s been there a while. I wish I had taken photos from the side. An amazing wall of color.

    1. wickedhamster:
      It’s an interesting neighborhood and right at the north tip of Brooklyn Bridge Park, which makes it more accessible.

  1. First off, love the street art always!
    Secondly, that third phot, with the bridge flying overhead and the Brooklyn Bridge in the background. I have seen variations before, but it always amazes me. Everyone traveling in all directions at once.

    1. Bob:
      And the Manhattan Bridge still has trains crossing it. So that movement is even more powerful.

    1. mcpersonalspace54:
      I hope you get there. Queens has become a cool place to live now, too. Definitely visit Brooklyn Bridge Park if you can. The walking, people-watching, and views are incredible.

  2. Glorious! Good looking weather, too. This is one of the places I planned to visit had I been able to do the trip I was planning for 2020. One day…

    1. Walt the Fourth:
      The weather was perfect. The day before, I got soaked in a sudden rainstorm that lasted just long enough for me to reach the subway station.

  3. It’s uncanny how much of downtown Troy and Albany look like parts of Brooklyn and NYC…but without all the grandeur and activity and…well…appeal.

    1. Sassybear:
      I haven’t been to Albany or Troy since around 1978. But I do remember being surprised at some of the similarities. That ignorant New York chauvinism made me think it was the only place that looked like that.

  4. Ooh, is the next stop a Jewish Deli? Might it be the one from When Harry Met Sally? I shall return to find out.
    Keep enjoying, and thanks for sharing your NY experience.

    1. Robyn:
      Yes it is! Just about to post that today. But not Katz’s where Harry met Sally. We almost went there but knew it would be way too crowded on a Saturday (and we’d be on top of other diners).

  5. I’m not much into Mexican food. but if Pedro’s interiors are as eye-catching as its interiors, I’d give it a try.

Please share your thoughts...
