111 Front Street Galleries 


The DUMBO neighborhood in Brooklyn is well-known as a premier art district in New York City. DUMBO began to develop as an art district in the 1970s, when cheap rentals began to attract artists to reside and open up studios here. Today, there are a cluster of private art studios and galleries spread across DUMBO. A well-known location for premier art is the 111 Front Street Galleries, housed in a converted warehouse.
