Gallery View

This is a view of the Manhattan Bridge from Smack Mellon Studios on the waterfront in Dumbo, Brooklyn. The gallery is on Plymouth Street which abuts Brooklyn Bridge Park, so it gets unobstructed views of the Bridge, the Park, Manhattan and the East River, which separates Brooklyn from Manhattan. Click here for another photo. This fantastic space is newly occupied - it was vacant for decades. There are 25 windows on two levels with 35 foot ceilings. For information regarding the gallery's mission, type of work, upcoming shows, etc., check their website here. Dumbo is one of the most spectacularly beautiful and visually dramatic neighborhoods in the 5 boroughs of NYC. I highly recommend you visit regardless of the time or your interests - just walk the streets and, of course, visit the galleries...

I love everything about this photo, the window view, the mood in the room, the hugging couple, the photographing couple. Love it!

Ruth;
It was a "Kodak moment" as they used to say.

Dumbo!

I never heard of it aside from the circus elephant.

I can't believe that property sat vacant all that time.
