More than just a Disney character, DUMBO is a trendy neighborhood in Brooklyn, boasting incredible views of Manhattan, the Brooklyn Bridge and indie shops all along the waterfront.


The entire area is actually pretty small, just more than 30 acres divided by the Manhattan Bridge stretching overhead. In the summer, head to Brooklyn Flea’s outdoor marketplace, but any other time of year, check out a few of our favorites next time you hit the neighborhood’s cobblestone streets.

Front General Store

Find retro pieces, oddities and antique-themed hardware at Front General Store. Located on Front Street, customers find unique and minimalist incense, bath products, accessories and quintessentially Brooklyn gifts.


Empire Stores

You can find a J. Crew store almost anywhere, but Empire Stores is worth a visit for the building alone. This Civil War-era brick building showcases the waterfront to one side and cobblestone streets to the other. Visit the Feed Shop and Café or just see if any fun events are going on while you’re there.



Head to Trunk for funky clothing, unique accessories and fun scented gifts like soaps and candles.


Brooklyn Industries

Shop trendy pieces for men, women and children at Brooklyn Industries. All bags are made in New York and the creative space even gives back a small percentage of proceeds from online orders to the Brooklyn Community Foundation.


Powerhouse Arena

Shop for books in Powerhouse Arena, or plan your visit for a community event, book launch or reading.
