The area is called DUMBO. It’s under the Manhattan Bridge. Get it? The city has revived the waterfront and created a park. Build it and they will come. On a given sunny weekend there are loads of people and a residential address has cache now. So I stitched a panorama together. It’s raw and needs plenty of work. It should be shot over again. I probably won’t do it. The Brooklyn Bridge is to the left. And way back is the Williamsburg Bridge. No kidding, this was not a place to walking around ten years ago.
It’s always been in my life in New York. You take if for granted. It is a means of getting from point A to B. I have commuted over the bridge for many years on the way to work. I have biked over the bridge on the five borough bike tour. I have walked and biked the bridge just touring. And I have stood on Brooklyn Heights and at the South St Seaport. It’s an old friend that you sometimes forget, taking it for granted.
