DUMBO Gallery Tours

DUMBO GALLERY TOUR
Life Down Under the Manhattan Bridge is about lifestyle, history and family. Until the 1890’s, this neighborhood was known as Fulton Ferry named after the steamboats and ferry stop that connected Brooklyn to Manhattan. You can still see remnants of its old manufacturing history. Cobblestones pierce through concrete streets. Old factory buildings still stand and trolley tracks can be seen.
The area has emerged as one of New York City’s premier arts districts, with a mix of for-profit and non-profit art galleries, eclectic shops and cozy restaurants. Hear the loud clangs of the subways crossing the Manhattan Bridge and stand in awe of the famous Brooklyn Bridge.
