Why You Should Move Here
Full disclosure: This magazine has had offices in DUMBO for just about a decade, now, and we’re still not crazy about the neighborhood. But let us try to list the good: wonderful views of the city, some very good pizza (Grimaldi’s), accessible by land and sea, a good bakery (Almondine), two good bookstores, and two good bars (68 Jay and Superfine). And, sure, if you like tourists taking pictures of the Manhattan Bridge and overpriced delis and roadwork, this is also the place for you.
What the Future Holds
Great news, everyone, you can finally visit Jane’s Carousel! Also, luxury condominiums in parks, in order to pay for said parks—thanks free market!
Where You’ll Find Us
See above. Or waiting on line for the ferry.
Seriously, unless you can afford the penthouse views and/or to have your groceries flown in by helicopter, we can’t see why someone would actively seek to rent in DUMBO.
Average two-bedroom rental: $4,600 (HAHAHA)
