Dumbo is one of my top favorite neighborhoods in Brooklyn. Hands down. If I had a few million to kill, I would easily drop it on a loft in Dumbo with an amazing view of the B-Bridge. Hell, I would purchase the amazing Clock Tower Loft if I could. Can you imagine a more perfect place to throw a New Year's Eve party?
But back to what I really love about Dumbo. It's industrial, full of brick buildings, cobble stone streets, and just the most picturesque urban waterfront you'll come by. While meandering around this summer, I came across knitting graffiti artist, Olek's, knitted piano installation. The newly open glass carousel is pretty nice too and is sure to draw crowds this summer. So if you are visiting Brooklyn any time soon, stop by this spot. You won't regret it. Oh, and it happens to be the home to Etsy Brooklyn Headquarters too, which I have had a chance to visit twice.
