The Brooklyn Bridge, from Old Fulton Street

Brooklyn Bridge, nyc Photo by myself at Old Fulton and Water Streets, in DUMBO, Brooklyn.

Many of the buildings in DUMBO are rather old. The one above has a nice patina of age. In the background, one of the piers of the Brooklyn Bridge.

DUMBO is short for 'Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass' and is located at the foot of the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges, on the Brooklyn side of the East River. The two bridges are close to each other.

There are warehouses, stores, apartment buildings and a spatter of cobblestone streets. Recently, with upgrades to the waterfront, DUMBO has become a more popular destination for visitors.
