DUMBO

The view from the bathroom of my new freelance gig in DUMBO, which (aside from the view, kinda) reminds me of a bathroom in South Korea. Go figure.

DUMBO stands for Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass, and it’s one of the more unique neighborhoods in Brooklyn. Old warehouses converted into office spaces, art galleries, and expensive apartments; all accompanied by the intermittent roar of a subway train rolling over the bridge. Lots of art being made there, which makes it a more interesting place to work than midtown Manhattan, and it’s only a fifteen minute subway ride from my apartment, which makes me wish I could work there all the time. Or maybe it’s because the bathrooms remind me of South Korea.

An editor friend of mine rents an office there with a few other people, and when I asked him if it was expensive he said “uh… Kinda.”
