Scott Kelby’s Fifth Annual Worldwide Photowalk DUMBO

DUMBO Pearl St & Water St

Last Saturday I attended Scott Kelby’s 5th Annual Worldwide Photowalk as part of the group that met up in the DUMBO area of Brooklyn, NY. I grew up in Brooklyn but DUMBO (a neighborhood located near the waterfront under the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges) didn’t become a haven for creatives and tech startups until around the time I was in college. Since then, I’ve visited the area several times and taken pictures of Lower Manhattan from Fulton Landing.

The Brooklyn Bridge

Brooklyn Bridge - The Runway

Although Brooklyn and Manhattan are separated by a narrow body of water, they have different very different personalities. The easiest way to appreciate the difference would be to tour Manhattan, walk across the Brooklyn Bridge, and then explore Brooklyn. You’ll begin to get a sense of the difference when you get about half way on the bridge and have a clear view of both boroughs.
