The Archway is a 7,000 square foot space under the Manhattan Bridge, paved with historic Belgian block and boasting a 45′ height. The Archway was closed for 17 years and used as a New York City Department of Transportation (DOT) facility for storing scrap metal. After years of advocacy by the DUMBO Improvement District, DOT returned The Archway to the public in 2007. It plays host to performances, events, lunchtime vendors, and more.
The Archway is on Water Street between Adams Street and Anchorage Place in DUMBO. Here’s how to get to DUMBO.
