Both times we went over to Brooklyn we loved it. We caught the train from Manhattan and arrived in Brooklyn. Please be warned most places are cash only, hence why we went twice. We struggled to get cash out from the local ATM's which are privately owned and all vary different fees. (Upto $6). First visit we had lunch at... More

What started off as an uncertain day trip turned into one of the nicest. What I found in DUMBO Brooklyn was a jewel shining bright. The shopping was unbelievably chic, one of a kind, designs. Designs that Carrie Bradshaw would be seen wearing. The street food of all kind was delicious and topped of with an ice cream which was... More

Lots to see if you want to walk around. Plenty of restaurants and stores to visit. This is close to the Brooklyn Bridge.

It was very crowded and more or less impossible to find a place for dinner - very disappointing as the atmosphere was what we came for and it did not meet our expectations at all

Due to a hurricane a few years back DUMBO hasn't quite managed to populate its retail space and still has a bit of work to go before it reaches its full potential. Still, some lovely places to eat here and the park is a great spot for a walk with views.

I walked to this area on a Sunday afternoon, after attending a service at the Brooklyn Tabernacle and walking the Brooklyn Heights Promenade. I just so happened to catch the Brooklyn Flea Market, which was fun to check out for a bit. I got a snack from there, and took it to a bench overlooking the river, with great views... More
