Landmark building located in Vinegar Hill just east of DUMBO. Vinegar Hill / DUMBO is an old warehouse district which has become home to artists, designers, entrepreneurs and likeminded creatives ~ it's at the foot of the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges; a beautiful neighborhood with old Belgium cobblestone streets; walk to the Brooklyn Bridge Park and water piers and take in all the beautiful architecture, spectacular views of the East river and city and vibrant art scene. Vinegar Hill has a peaceful remote village feeling but you're only minutes away from the city!
Subway (York St, F-Train) to Manhattan is 1.5 blocks from apartment and is first stop in Brooklyn from Manhattan.
Take a NYC yellow taxi. There will be a taxi line that you have to go stand in when you arrive. The guy managing the line will ask you where you are going. Say Downtown Brooklyn. When you get into the cab tell the driver you are going to “DUMBO”. He may know it, he may not. If he doesn’t tell him it is underneath the Manhattan Bridge and he can get there by taking the BQE (Brooklyn Queens expressway) to the Tillary St exit (#29). When you get onto Tillary you want to take your immediate right onto Gold St. Go 4 blocks on Gold. Take a left on York. Take first right onto Bridge. Take first right onto Front St. and pull over to the right side of the street immediately.

I am an ex-pat Canadian. It took me a minute to get adjusted to big city life but I now feel at home in the hustle of the city.
I am an avid runner, swimmer and biker and Vinegar Hill / DUMBO is a beautiful neighbourhood that affords great public spaces to be outside. I love the beautiful Brooklyn Bridge Park and the lovely Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges.
