PIZZA PIZZA PIZZA! Who's got the best pizza in Dumbo? Dumbo's decade's long pizza war has got a newcomer in town. L&B Spumoni Gardens is opening up a new pizza shop on Old Fulton street. All that means for us is that we've got more delicious pizza to try!
Living up to the Hype. Hypebeast interviews New York legend, Cey Adams in his Dumbo studio. Known as a “graffiti vandal” in his early years, Adams is now recognized as a key influence in the development of hip-hop culture, as a peer of DONDI, Futura, Haring, and Basquiat and as the previous creative director at Def Jam. The article features gorgeous images of his Dumbo studio! Take a look!
Welcome Neighbor! Design agency MAS Events + Design is moving to Dumbo. The agency has maintained a Brooklyn presence for years but thanks to explosive growth on their end they are relocating to Dumbo Heights since Dumbo offers the space that they need now and can provide them with space they need for their future growth.
Speaking of Neighbors... Details have emerged about the new residential complex coming to 85 Jay Street. In addition to the charm of the neighborhood, this complex will have a ton of amenities like one of NYC's largest private parks and an epic view of the Manhattan Bridge!

Tanya is a long-time Dumbo resident and artist who has contributed a great deal to the neighborhood.
