Before DUMBO was home to multi-million dollar residential lofts, fancy restaurants, and upscale retail stores, it was an old industrial and manufacturing neighborhood. This vintage photograph from 1926 shows a bit of that historic neighborhood as we peer towards the Manhattan Bridge from the intersection of Washington Street and York Street. Check out the specimen page on the New York Public Library digital archives for more information on the photograph.
