See and Be Seen

Annual Meeting

Each year, hundreds gather to hear what's coming up in the neighborhood, meet fellow Dumbonians and celebrate local rockstars. Not. To. Be. Missed.


April 25 | 5pm—7pm | The Dumbo Loft

Please RSVP via EventBrite by April 24 at 8pm.

Join local business owners, residents, movers, shakers, and assorted other local characters for a look back at 2017 and forward at 2018. We'll crown our annual *Dumbo Dozen* (see below), give out this year's Magic Feather to long time Dumbo Improvement District Board President Tom Montvel Cohen, and hear from Executive Director Alexandria Sica about all the BID has been up to.

Once a year we gather for a deep dive into this fantastic community.

On January 23, 2017 (despite the insane weather), 250+ members of the DUMBO Improvement District packed the Etsytorium in Etsy’s stunning new DUMBO Heights offices to celebrate all things DUMBO. They sampled treats from Bluestone Lane and Forager’s, enjoyed music by Turntable Lab’s DJ Keat Teoh, and celebrated all of the DUMBO Dozen and Magic Feather recipients.

2016 Annual Meeting

May 19, 2016, members of the DUMBO Improvement District packed the Archway to celebrate ten years of the DUMBO Improvement District. 350+ enthusiastic DUMBOnians showed up, donned SoundOff headsets, toasted our decade with beers from the Lighthouse, enjoyed performances by DUMBO artists, and celebrated all of the DUMBO Dozen and Magic Feather recipients.

"The before and after of DUMBO is really something!" said Executive Director Alexandria Sica as she showed images of the Archway and Pearl Street Triangle before they were transformed into plaza spaces, the BQE before it was covered with DUMBO Walls, and many other great works of the organization over the last ten years.
