Dumbo Then and Now: Two Trees Maps Current Neighborhood

Although not a typical DumboNYC Then and Now Series photos, below are drawn maps published by Two Tree Management circa 2002 and the newly published map of 2007. Brooklyn Eagle first published a story about these maps back on March 22, 2007. From Brooklyn Eagle:

“The one less cluttered is about five years old and the other one was produced this year. These two maps are worth more than a thousand words. The first one shows an early stage of the creation of this new neighborhood and the new one shows what has happened in about 60 short months since then, including the erection of two new buildings, one at 100 Jay Street and the other at 85 Adams Street…”

Also discussed are the increase in retail stores and art galleries

“For the first map it was possible to display about 23 retail or gallery outlets, almost all clustered between the bridges. It showed four lonely buildings, only one identified, north of the Manhattan Bridge…[The new map] now lists 77 outlets…”

As Brooklyn Eagle states, maybe in less than 5 years, there will be another version showing new buildings, new retail, and a bigger Brooklyn Bridge Park.
