If nothing else, Dumbo and Brooklyn Heights are easy on the eyes. Perched on the East River, these Brooklyn neighbourhoods look back at Lower Manhattan and fill the frame with public art and iconic bridges. The increasingly beautiful Brooklyn Bridge Park sits on the waterfront. This is where a constant stream of fitness enthusiasts and weekend adventurers catch their thrills against a backdrop of towering Lower Manhattan skyscrapers.
In true Brooklyn fashion, Dumbo serves as a hub for makers and start-ups exporting ideas to the world. At happy hour, you’re as likely to overhear a conversation about the latest in solar technology as one about contemporary art movements or the best way to sell vintage rugs online. New ideas are the drumbeat in Brooklyn, and Dumbo is where people go to bring them to life in a setting that’s nothing short of inspirational.View all Brooklyn Heights spaces
You'll find me here almost every week at the flea market selling my jewelry.

The river, shops and boutiques are the best bits of Dumbo, it has it's own special charm.
I come here to stroll along the front, it's impossible to get bored of the NY skyline.
