Residents and businesses in Zone A (generally Water Street and Plymouth Street in Dumbo) are in the mandatory evacuation zone. A NY Times article interviewed some Dumbo residents who have stayed behind. High tide has come, and parts of Adams Street near the Brooklyn Bridge Park is underwater already:
