Stand at the intersection of Water Street and Washington Street in Dumbo, and you’ll see the Manhattan Bridge perfectly framed by two red-brick warehouses. The Empire State Building peeks through the Manhattan Bridge’s arches.
This is THE SPOT you have to visit take a selfie and post on your feed.
The swarms of visitors, influencers, and wedding parties have effectively establish this intersection. The Manhattan Bridge Towers in the background and its so pretty! – You can move back and forth, add or change lenses, cameras – anything you do it will lead to great results. Please, do not get too excited 😀
Further down the street, closer to the Eastern River shores underneath Manhattan Bridge you can still find rail lines and original pavement blocks.
Abandoned rail tracks in DUMBO are often mistaken as trolley lines.
These tracks belonged to the Jay Street Connecting Railroad – JSCR, one of the shortest rail lines in Brooklyn. It was originally constructed 1904 by the Arbuckle Brothers, who imported coffee from far-flung regions. Goods were shuttled into warehouses a lofts in the streets of DUMBO via the tracks. The JSCR ran its last load in 1959.
