Walking Tour of DUMBO
Gigantic lollipops. Vats of candy. Pretty displays of sweets. Who doesn't love a trip to an old-fashioned candy store, with bins of sweets that remind you of your childhood?
Plan to spend awhile mulling over your delicious options at tiny Dewey’s Candy shop. NY Magazine gave it a rave review in an article titled Best Sweet Shops in 2010.
And, these are nice people. Their treats may tempt the most disciplined dieter, but the kid-friendly owners have taken some socially-responsible steps (unrelated to calories). For instance, they've contributed some profits to an anti-bullying campaign.
Tip for indulgent parents: If a promise of a trip to a candy store is what will get your children to walk over the Brooklyn Bridge with you, then this is your made-in-candy-heaven destination bribe.
What You Can Do Here: Have fun with the kids, buy goodies for Easter, birthday parties, and other parties, get a souvenir treat to take home.
