Walking Tour of DUMBO'S Front Street: The Best Things in Life Are FreeAs you walk down Front Street, it's hard to know where to look first, up at the bridges or across the water at Manhattan.
The Manhattan views are amazing. Close to the East River, and nestled between the enormous supports for the Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridge, you get the sense of just how close — and far — Brooklyn and Manhattan are.
From this perspective, it seems completely conceivable that Brooklyn started as an independent city. At the same time, is also clear how connected these two boroughs of New York are — literally.
What You Can Do Here: Find a quiet bench. Let your imagination go. Bring a camera. Even for those born and bred in Brooklyn, this is a wonderful place for memorable photos.
