Brooklyn , NY

DUMBO 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 Trolley car still peeking through the Belgian-block streets.
