Clumber Corner

Clumber Corner [OpenStreetMap]

This plot of tree-studded land in Dumbo lies in a precarious spot for pedestrians, at the intersection of the BQE and the Brooklyn-side landings of both the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges. If you can stand some noise and exhaust fumes, enter at the corner of Washington and Prospect Streets and relax for a bit, and thank those trees for doing what they can to scrub the air and make it breathable again. Occasionally there are art installations in the park, so explore the 1-acre slope and there may be some hidden surprises!

Did you know? According to a plaque at the park, the name comes from the Clumber Spaniel, a right jolly ol' pup that was named for the Clumber Park in Nottinghamshire, England where they were first bred.
