The Archway

The Archway under the Manhattan Bridge is a spectacular plaza, and one of New York City’s most unique public spaces. At 45' high, the cathedral-like Archway inspires awe. 

For decades, the Archway was used as a New York City Department of Transportation (DOT) facility for storing scrap metal. In 2007, after years of advocacy by the DUMBO Improvement District, the DOT returned The Archway to the public under the DOT Plaza Program. Now the epic space hosts 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.
