DUMBO Reflects: The Legacy of Steve Jobs

The influence Steve Jobs has made on the people of DUMBO cannot be overstated. Over the past week, 61% of visitors to this site have been on an Apple device. Compared with a 10.9% Apple OS market share generally, according to Quantcast, you get a sense of how remarkable the Apple loyalty is around here. With this loyalty came a sense of great loss last week. Here, we’ve gathered a few reflections from around the neighborhood on the legacy of Steve Jobs.
