83. NEW YORK ON FOOT. DUMBO, Brooklyn. In a city full of neighborhood acronyms (Tribeca, Soho, Nolita), DUMBO may be the best (Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass). Not the greatest photo ever taken, but it contains some New York staples: razor wire, a bridge, the Freedom Tower (under construction), retro industrial chic, and a classic rooftop water tank. An interesting weekend project would be to walk DUMBO, then rent The French Connection and see how different it was in the 70’s.
