If you’re up high enough, one of the best things about Dumbo is the view.

The panorama includes the East River, the Manhattan skyline, the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges, the Staten Island Ferry, and the Statue of Liberty. Apartments that look out on to this vista are the most sought-after in the neighborhood.

60 Water, a new rental building in the heart of Dumbo, offers views that are hard to beat.

Apartments in this 17-story glass tower feature floor-to-ceiling windows ideal for taking it all in. And the rooftop garden, designed by one of the landscape architects behind The High Line, offers a breathtaking proximity to the Brooklyn Bridge.

As you might expect, the rentals come with a full suite of amenities, including a bike room, garage, and a gym. The support staff includes a 24-hour concierge, on-site maintenance, and a live-in super.

And then there’s the aforementioned outdoor space: A 6,000-square-foot rooftop garden designed by James Corner Field Operations, the firm behind such high-profile projects as The High Line, San Francisco’s Presidio Parklands, and the Seattle Central Waterfront. Select apartments also feature private terrace space. Imagine how many friends will be trying to invite themselves over to your place for the 4th of July fireworks.


Interior details live up to the high bar set by the exteriors. Each apartment features oak floors, quartz countertops, and kitchen and bath appliances by Leibherr and Bosch.


In the end, though, it’s all about location. The building is just 85 feet from the Brooklyn Bridge and about a 30-second walk from Brooklyn Bridge Park.

Make an appointment to visit the leasing office to see studio, 1-bedroom, and 2-bedroom apartments at 60 Water. Maybe it’s time for you to get one of these views for yourself.
