Brooklyn Landmarks-DUMBO


(Down Under The Manhattan Bridge Overpass)

The DUMBO Historic District has approximately 91 buildings. The earliest commercial structures in the district are from the 1850s. The neighborhood became increasingly industrial in the decades following the Civil War. Due to it’s transformation from residential to industrial there is a wide range of architectural styles and materials from Greek Revival to reinforced concrete. One of the main attractions of DUMBO is the extant tracks from the old Trolly car still peeking through the cobble-stone streets. Designated December 18, 2007
