Walking the dog on Friday I did a quick double-take when I saw this sign:

Curb Your God Street Art

This is one of the things we love most in DUMBO– the street art.  While things have changed a lot here over the past five years- Wall Streeters discovering our waterfront neighborhood, pop-up shops and galleries– we’re lucky to still have a strong artist community.  While the warehouses on Plymouth Street and 68 Jay Street may remain some of the few strong holds for the original DUMBO artists, we see the effects of this community throughout our little neighborhood.  DUMBO is blessed with a constant stream of innovative art, not just in the galleries, but in the streets where we often see some of the most interesting pieces.

This piece is by TrustoCorp who have left their mark around the neighborhood… and we like it.

Damages, FX's legal-drama, used The Anchorage building this week to keep warm while shooting in DUMBO

The Damages team spent the last week holed up and keeping warm in our very own Plymouth Street spot.  While we can’t say everybody was thrilled that FX‘s legal-drama show claimed all the decent parking spots in the neighborhood, those of us in the building did get to see a bit of the action.  Most of the team was set up down on the second floor where everybody was trying to keep warm against the January cold, but the main shots were done with that priceless Brooklyn Bridge view in mind.  All of us at The Anchorage know that a good shot of the DUMBO waterfront is priceless, and all of you sitting in front of your flat-screens have a chance to share that experience in the upcoming Damages….  and if it leaves you wanting more, we’ll be here at The Anchorage to serve you a beer and a little art with that view.

All our local parking was snatched up for the duration of the shoot 😦
