Visiting Dumbo in Brooklyn, New York – Niso’s goosebump moment
“Hello! My name is Niso from Swaziland, which is now called Eswatini. My goosebump moment was last year. It happened to me last year in 2021. I was randomly being a tourist visiting Dumbo, in Brooklyn, New York. And I happened to stumble under the Brooklyn bridge from like this amazing angle where you can see the water and see the skyline. It had just gotten dark. What was wild to me was that I had seen that exact same spot in my dream, 6 months before, while I was still in Swaziland. So, my dreams literally came to life that night. It was wild. Never expected it. Did not even know that place existed, but yeah, that was my goosebump moment.”
A must-see attraction
Dumbo was an industrial area of Brooklyn on the banks of the East River, which mutated when artists, architects and designers converted their sheds and industrial buildings into lofts and offices with great views of the Manhattan skyline.
It is another New York neighborhood named with an acronym, which in this case means: Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass. It stretches between the Brooklyn Bridge and the Manhattan Bridge.
Brooklyn Bridge Park is on the banks of the East River, which extends south of the Brooklyn Bridge. This Park is a must-see attraction; from there the views of lower Manhattan are breathtaking, you will get some of your best photos of New York.
The Park is a great viewpoint of Manhattan, but it also has other charming experiences such as Jane’s Carousel, an old merry-go-round protected by a glass pavilion, which allows you to ride its little horses all year round.
