The BSL English Outdoors (EO) Lounge is located in Dumbo, just a few minutes walk from the Brooklyn Bridge, Brooklyn Bridge Park, and the beautiful neighborhood of Brooklyn Heights. The famous view of Manhattan bridge, one of New York’s most famous Instagram shots, is also in the neighborhood.
Artsy, and full of old industrial and warehouse buildings that have been turned into spacious luxury residential lofts and retail spaces, Dumbo (short for Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass) has become one of the most popular and coolest neighborhoods to live and work in New York. Not least because of its close proximity to Manhattan. It’s just 1 stop on the subway!
The area of Dumbo was originally a ferry landing, characterized by 19th- and early 20th-century industrial and warehouse buildings, Belgian block streets, and its location on the East River right by the imposing anchorage of the Manhattan Bridge. The entirety of Dumbo was bought by a New York developer in the late 20th century, and remade into an upscale residential and commercial community—first becoming a haven for art galleries, and currently a center for technology startups.
In recent years, the Dumbo waterfront has been completely re-developed into a great place to walk around, with restaurants, retail outlets, Jane’s Carousel, St Ann’s warehouse (now a great theater venue), and of course Brooklyn Bridge Park.
Famous restaurants include the world renowned Grimaldi’s pizza, Dumbo’s famous Juliana’s pizza, Shake Shack, Gran Electrica, Cecconi’s and the stylish River Cafe. There are also a number of great ice cream places in the neighborhood.
The EO Lounge is situated in a loft-style setting, in a 8-floored building. There are 3 subway stations within minutes of the Lounge, giving you access to the A, C, F, 2, and 3 lines. New York City Bus service is provided by the B25, B67 and B69. You can also hop on the East river ferry located at Brooklyn Bridge park, which is another great way to explore the city.
On arrival, please go to reception and ask for Brooklyn School of Languages.
