Great place to wander around before crossing the Brooklyn bridge. Extraordinary view of Manhattan, and the bridge from below.

Before it was known as DUMBO (not Dumbo) it was a cool place, but the millenials have ruined it. Then again, if you are a millenial, you'll probably love it.

Fascinating visit here- sit and watch the world go by - check out the view before you, see the bridges up close or shop in style.

Nice area in transition. Clearing becoming more "in" as microbrew pubs are popping up. Some sketchy areas but its a big city. Nice evening walk.

I'm sure there are healthy options. But all good things can be done in moderation. Enjoy Atrium in Dumbo. The food was fabulous, the general manager was so warm and hospitable.
