On Wednesday April 25, 2018, 200+ members of the DUMBO Improvement District turned out to the Dumbo Loft to celebrate all things DUMBO. They sampled treats from VHH Foods, SUGARCANE raw bar grill, Smile to Go, and Bluestone Lane, enjoyed La Catrina's lovely flower arrangements, and celebrated all of the DUMBO Dozen and Magic Feather recipients.
Once a year we gather for a deep dive into this fantastic community.
Alexandria Sica - Executive Director - the Dumbo Improvement District
ICYMI: Alexandria Sica’s State of the Neighborhood Address
DUMBO BID Executive Director Alexandria Sica welcomed everyone and began her address with a headline that actually appeared in The New York Times last summer: Dumbo Stakes Its Claim as a Dining Destination. *mic drop*
She told the story of how we got there— starting with the opening of Empire Stores— and announced two exciting additions coming soon!
Next up, Ms. Sica introduced all of the fantastic new businesses that have opened in DUMBO since our last Annual Meeting.
The next portion of the presentation focused on neighborhood improvement projects that we're so excited about— including building out Bridge Park 2, transforming the plaza under the Brooklyn Bridge, and restoring DUMBO's Belgian Blocks.
Plus, more people, companies, and events that set DUMBO apart and a look ahead at fun events happening this summer!
