Dumbo (Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass) is one of Brooklyn's most historic neighborhoods. In recent years, the city has taken great steps to convert it into a destination for recreation rather than business. Among one of the most major changes was the opening and continued expansion of the Brooklyn Bridge Park, which will eventually reach the old Port Authority Piers by the Brooklyn Promenade. These photos are from Friday, October 7, 2011.
