NEW YORK CITY LOCAL GUIDES:
EXPLore the city one neighborhood at a time
Maybe the most picturesque part of NYC (I should know, I carry a camera everywhere I go ;), is DUMBO on the water's edge in Brooklyn. "DUMBO," an acronym for "down under the manhattan bridge overpass," is a tiny area of Brooklyn between the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges. Flanked by these two giants, and facing the entire skyline of Manhattan, DUMBO is home to some of the best businesses, shopping, and events in Brooklyn.
Crown Heights in located smack dab in the center of Brooklyn. It's home to Caribbean beats, Jewish streets, and.... drumroll... ME! Tyler and I sort of stumbled into Crown Heights.
