Through Josh Derr's Eyes

We’ve posted a lot of Josh Derr’s photos on DumboNYC over the years. We obviously like his documentation of Dumbo and its buildings over the years. He’s also a contributor to the website from time to time. Love it or hate it, Dumbo as a neighborhood is changing – the people, buildings, businesses. And these changes have especially accelerated very quickly in the past 10 years. That’s when Josh first came to Dumbo, according to a recent article in the Brooklyn Rail. He sees what we see – change. Some are good, while others negatively impact the neighborhood dynamic forever. Josh’s photos show the beauty of Dumbo’s classic industrial buildings, new structures, and streetscapes, even with their flaws, cracks, and defects.
