Scenes from a morning walk through DUMBO.

Coast Guard cutter heading down the East River to take a position near Governor's Island. This happens whenever the President is due in town.

Women exercising Great Danes under Manhattan Bridge.

Looking southward along Anchorage Place and Pearl Street.

Looking southward along Adams Street.

Brooklyn Bridge from Plymouth Street.

Powerhouse Arena window.

Truck on Water Street.

There's more on DUMBO here.

Update: Thanks to Anonymous for correcting my geography. What I thought was Jay Street is actually Pearl (I checked a more detailed map to confirm), and it, along with Jay and Adams, actually runs north-south rather than east-west (my mistake here was in thinking that anything perpendicular to the East River must run east-west, but DUMBO lies next to a stretch of the East River that runs east-west instead of north-south). I've amended my text accordingly.


  1. I love the shot of the bridge! I miss NyC.

    Adams and Jay run North-south, not east-west, and that's Pearl St, not Jay
