If you are visiting New York City, you have to add add Dumbo to your list! Dumbo is in Brooklyn and it stands for Down Under the Manhattan Bridge. In Dumbo, you get an amazing view of the New York Skyline and the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridge. The area is filled with cobblestone streets, great restaurants, trendy cafes, and great photo spots. Here are the best Instagram spots in Dumbo Brooklyn. You can also see the best Instagram spots in New York City in my blog post here.
Intersection of Washington Street and Water Street
At the intersection of Washington Street and Water Street, you will find one of the best photo spots in Dumbo. The Manhattan bridge between the red brick buildings is such an iconic shot! And if it is a clear day and you line it up perfectly, you could even see the Empire State Building between the legs of the bridge.
This is a super popular photo spot so make sure you arrive early or just be super patient. After I took this shot, there was a line to take a photo here lol.
Pebble Beach is a small beach in Dumbo and it has such an amazing view of the New York City skyline. It’s also a perfect spot to watch the sunset.
Brooklyn Bridge Park
This is a waterfront park that is filled with activities and things to do. You can check out their website here!
Pier 1 is located in Brooklyn Bridge Park along the water and it has another amazing view of the city skyline.
Under the Brooklyn Bridge
On the street, right under the Brooklyn Bridge makes such a great close-up shot of the Brooklyn Bridge!
Squibb Park Bridge
This is one of the newest bridges and it is located right behind 1 Hotels.
On the Brooklyn Bridge
When I visited Dumbo, the bridge was really packed so I didn’t get a chance to take a phot, but it’s on my list to do this summer! It’s such a great photo spot, but you have to get there early if you don’t want a lot of people in the background.
Hope you enjoyed my post on the best Instagram spots in Dumbo Brooklyn.
