I hadn't been to DUMBO (down under Manhattan Bridge Overpass) for about ten years. Then, I bicycled there. This time I came on the subway.
Friday was overcast and gloomy. Everything in Dumbo was oversized, industrial strength and dramatic.
It's all been gentrified to bits -which is wonderful. Here I am under the bridge.
And more of the same.
How light the lofts must be!
Old tram tracks and cobblestones...
shouting out urban and gritty
and reflecting things
a restaurant swathed in vines
and an astoundingly fancy French patisserie. I need to explore further.
