"hip and artsy area"

DUMBO is full of funky art galleries and fun restaurants. Water st is definitely a happening place.

"Best View in New York"

Water Street has to be one of the nicest streets in New York. Whenever I visit here, I find myself looking at the real estate around and considering moving to DUMBO. There is a great restaurant sitting at the edge of the river right under the Brooklyn Bridge called the River Cafe. The Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory is right next door and looks over the Fulton Landing which has been featured in many movies. Jacques Torres Chocolate Shop is a great place to head for a rich hot chocolate and then there is the new carousel and St. Ann's Warehouse to tide you over entertainment wise until the summer comes and Brooklyn Bridge Park concerts restart.

"Nice Quiet Artsy Neighborhood"

There is a Great Artistic community in DUMBO Brooklyn. There is a lovely view of manhattan from the waterfront. There is a vibrant art scene. There is a lovely chocolate shop called Jaques Torres. A favorite place for fashion shoots, Dumbo is beautiful and scenic. Make sure to check out the open studios in the summer.

"1 Water St."

Who ever thought listen to traffic going over the Brooklyn Bridge would be enjoyable but it is one of the features you find yourself remembering when visiting and dinning on Water St. at the River Cafe.
Seat outside with a drink while looking at the New York skyline.
There are many places to eat while on Water St. however, I can't bring myself to go to any other place.
