DUMBO Lights the Shore Oct 29

On October 29, the DUMBO Improvement District, in partnership with the Brooklyn Longterm Recovery Group, joins waterfront neighborhoods across Brooklyn in hosting a candlelight vigil to commemorate the one-year anniversary of Superstorm Sandy. Join us for a moment of silence as we reflect on the storm’s impact and recognize our collective recovery efforts.
