    DUMBO stands for Down Under Manhattan Bridge Overpass and it’s one of those neighborhoods where you can still see remnants of its past melding with its current phase. Once filled with turn of the century warehouses that stored the bulk of goods that reached the shores of the East River, the area has grown into a revived powerhouse of art and culture. Last weekend, AF came out to the DUMBO Arts Festival where the celebration of all things creative spilled out literally to the sidewalks. Street vendors of all kinds, independent artists, music pervaded the air, and the gaiety of an early fall weekend that was unseasonably warm catapulted this event as the place to be. 111 Front Street stands as the de facto hub of all things artistic as its warren of galleries presented their best offerings for all to enjoy. There are no words to adequately describe the contact high of viewing art, absorbing the energy of the creative set, and being caught in the middle of it all. It is best to just show you in pictures. Make a note on your calendar next year: MUST GO TO DUMBO!
