DUMBO (short for Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass) was once an industrial area and has since become one of the borough’s toniest neighborhoods. Its late 19th-century warehouses have been converted into luxury condominiums that line the cobblestone streets along with opulent new developments and amenity-filled rental buildings. Outdoor activities are made easy in the award-winning Brooklyn Bridge Park where kayaking, “rock” climbing, and soccer are just a few of the many offerings. If you’re feeling lazy, take a ride on Jane’s historical carousel or grab an ice cream at the Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory in the old firehouse building. Hot spots include The River Café, St. Ann's Warehouse, Celestine, 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge, Superfine, and Randolf Beer.
