DUMBO, Down under Manhattan Bridge Overpass that’s the abbreviation for this small area between Brooklyn bridge and Manhattan bridge. If you’re an Instagram addict or you love photography and you’re in New York, you have to check out this place. Well actually in this case, most probably, you will have already seen it several times in your feed already or on some kind of wallpaper, for instance the Ikea one.
This spot is really popular among bloggers, tourists and photographers as you have the bridge in the background, the cobblestone street at your feet and the cool red brick buildings on the sides. Picture perfect for a great IG post or advertorial.
Well to join the crowd and not to have FOMO we went there to take some shots ourselves. However in the end we did not take too many shots since it was overcrowded as we thought it would be. If you want this popular shot I recommend you to go there in the week and early in the morning. Since we had seen it many times on IG we didn’t care about having this perfect shot, it was just fun to see it in real life and to see all those people struggling to have their brief moment without anyone else photo bombing their picture.
