A Day in DUMBO

Not the elephant that sports well endowed ears, but a neighborhood in Brooklyn called Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass.

Both of these shots are from York Street, this one is looking at the Midtown skyline in Manhattan across the East River...


Also on York Street but looking the opposite way...

Both these shots have been geotagged in Flickr and recommend checking them out to take a peek at the interesting geography and layout of the area. As per usual, I also recommend viewing these in large as well. You may do both these things by clicking on the shot...

One of the city's most precious of acronyms, but it yields some great vistas of Manhattan, IIRC. Thanks for recognizing this patch of Brooklyn, forgotten until recent years (until the catchy name evolved?)

Ironically, the partial reason for the name was to discourage gentrifaction back in the 1970's.
