If you’re in search of an evening to take in some cool art displays, check out the Dumbo First Thursday Gallery Walk.

Dumbo’s art galleries are open to the public later than usual on the first Thursday of every month from 6 to 9 p.m. The galleries have special events and receptions for participants on the walk, and area restaurants and bars offer deals and discounts.

The event allows Dumbo to show off its arts community, an important part of Dumbo for decades. Artists began to move in after the deindustrialization of the area in the 1970s, and even after the neighborhood’s transformation in the past decade or so, many still continue to work or live in the area.

The third-person shooter video game Tom Clancy’s The Division was released on March 8, and it offers virtual tourists and Brooklyn residents alike a rare opportunity: to stroll around Dumbo armed to the teeth, in the middle of an apocalypse.

New York is in chaos in the wake of a devastating smallpox pandemic, and as a sleeper agent of the Strategic Homeland Division, your job is to restore to order. Fortunately for us, YouTube user River Frozenn took a break from the mission to give us a tour of the game’s impressive rendering of Dumbo. (more…)
