East River Ferry
With its cobblestone streets, warehouse buildings, and creative vibe, it's no wonder DUMBO is a magnet for makers, innovators, and startup entrepreneurs alike. Physically separated from most of the borough by the Brooklyn Queens Expressway and Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridge entrance ramps, DUMBO and nearby Vinegar Hill truly feel like neighborhoods apart.
Brooklyn Bridge Park
This 85-acre waterfront park features six piers of recreational fields and family activities against a stunning backdrop of Lower Manhattan.
