And the Awardees are….

As is tradition, every year at the DUMBO Improvement District’s Annual Meeting, we honor individuals and organizations in DUMBO who have contributed to the neighborhood in a significant way with a Magic Feather, and highlight those doing fascinating and impactful work in their industries with a DUMBO Dozen Award.

The 2016 Magic Feather Awards will be bestowed upon:

  • The Brooklyn Bridge Park, for their visionary leadership building one of DUMBO’s most beloved natural assets.
