Wow - this neighborhood has changed so much in the past 10 years. Now there are so many cafes, restaurants and bars. There's a whole network of walking paths along the river with great views of the NYC skyline and the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges....More

Great place to explore, In Dumbo you can see art galleries, drink craft beer, have lunch or dinner at River Cafe, stroll on cobblestoned streets between the bridges and then go just explore the cool area.

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.

If you walk over the bridge you follow it to your left down some steps then left at the bottom of the steps and keep going straight on you will soon see it
