PSFK visits thriving arts neighborhood, DUMBO, to hear a Rolling Stone writer read from his latest book in partnership with Nokia.

DUMBO, short for Down Under The Manhattan Bridge Overpass, was deemed, for many years, a place that was “about to happen.” Artists were moving in and renting studios by the dozen, and a slew of small design shops and restaurants were popping up. Half a decade ago the neighborhood seemed poised to become the next Chelsea, and on a recent visit to the Brooklyn ‘burb, PSFK realized that it had. Throngs of hipsters, sightseers, and those simply drawn to the majestic waterfront meandered through the streets. This summer, as part of an initiative spearheaded by the Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy, the neighborhood is offering a range of free events and activities– from yoga in the park, to free local history and eco tours.
