If you haven’t been to DUMBO – a.k.a. Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass – or haven’t been going regularly, you are missing out on one of the most important hot spots for art, furnishing, food and culture trends. Try the FIT DUMBO Tour!
You all have probably noticed by now that we’re all about hidden and unique spots. Plus, we are huge fans of everything related to food and culture. That said, this is surely a tour we recommend!
Dumbo is a small neighborhood located in Brooklyn, right below the Brooklyn Bridge. It’s on the water front and has a fabulous view of Manhattan’s skyline.
In addition, the emerging art and culture scene is very fantastic and attracts a huge number of people through out the year that go to experience unique activities and events.
This is what to expect:
“Nestled between two bridges and flanked by the illustrious Brooklyn Navy Yard, this re-emerging Brooklyn neighborhood has become a critical destination for fashion professionals and exudes a culture and atmosphere all its own.
The programs introduces you to boutiques, beauty spots, art galleries, lifestyle brand stores, and sources for great food, all in a architectural setting with fabulous view of the Eastside skyline. This one is named “DUMBO: Brooklyn’s Latest Hipster Haven“.
After a brief introduction at FIT, attendees travel by subway to DUMBO. No same-day registration.”
It costs $45/person. Food and subway cost not included in course fee. Seminar Leader: Trina Morris, publicist, Style Root PR.
