NYT article- "Bringing Up Dumbo"

Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass, also known as DUMBO, is seeing a lot of action according to the New York Times article, Bringing Up Dumbo, by Jake Mooney. With old commercial buildings continuing to be converted, a robust young business scene and several top developers snatching up buildings, it seems like Dumbo is moving up the ladder of Brooklyn neighborhoods.

Well known developers like Toll Brothers, Two Trees Development, Hamlin Ventures and Alloy Department and Halstead Development Property Marketing are involved in building conversions. Dumbo is also home to a thriving art scene, with artists and creative companies taking advantage of the available warehouse space.

What does everyone think about Dumbo? Seems like a great neighborhood poised for positive growth.

No doubt in my mind,  DUMBO is moving up the chain.  The city is investing in restoring the Belgian Pave (cobblestone) and the park along Old Fulton is amazing. 

The only issue is the limitation of the size of the area.  Sure, sooner or later the Jehovah's Witness buildings will be sold, but what is left?
