Built in 1912, the structure contributes to the architectural and historical character of the DUMBO Historic District. Recently, the landmark building has been completely restored into a unique finished venue with more than 8,000 square feet of space. This grand venue can hold about 275 people for a seated function and 400 standing. The renovations highlight the building’s industrial past, original brick walls, large wooden doors, magnificent high ceiling with an immaculate sky light. Finished lighting and wall fixtures gives 26 Bridge an elegant touch. The authentic rustic style, mixed with a completely redesigned interior, creates a breath taking mix of old and new.

Don’t assume this plain looking deli to be any old NYC deli. The lunch special is made/served by the Mexican cooks, who cook the chicken and braise the pork shoulder all day (chopped up before serving) and toast the tortillas to-order, topped with cilantro, onions,and served with two kinds of sauce (avocado and brown spicy). A wedge of lime tops the tacos.
Founded in 1972, A.I.R. Gallery is the first all-women artist-directed art gallery in the United States. “Artists came together because women didn’t have a place to exhibit their work,” explains Jacqueline Ferrante, a manager at the gallery, in an interview with the DUMBO B.I.D. The name, A.I.R., stands for Artists in Residence, and comes from a habit that arose in 1970s SoHo, when artists put up signs on commercial spaces they were occupying to warn the fire department that artists were living there. The gallery offers a fellowship program designed for emerging or underrepresented artists, which allows the artists to have one solo show, as well as participate in a community project, such as a discussion, a demonstration, or a performance piece. The gallery is comprised of 22 New York artists who are also in charge of curating and installing their own exhibitions. This gives the artists a sense of control over their media and presentation. In addition to exhibits, A.I.R. Gallery offers an extensive public programming that engages artists of all backgrounds and generations. The Plymouth Street space is the first time since their founding in SOHO in the 70s that the gallery returns to a street level location.
