Hire a Local Designer to Outfit Your Dumbo Brooklyn Apartments

dumbo brooklyn apartments If you have seen what this guy did with his own 700 square foot apartment, I don’t think you would hesitate to ask him for some tips on how to coordinate your living space. Not only did he design and decorate his own space, but he seems to be pretty handy, too.

The interior design he did in his own DUMBO apartment was the subject of a feature article at brownstoner.com late last month. Most everything he used to decorate his apartment was purchased from stores where normal, everyday people shop. A few of the highlighted items in the article include material from national chain stores like Home Depot, J.C Penney, IKEA. Wall hangings are the work of local artists.

Aboody is the Co-founder of Clean Slate, a team of two interior designers. His services have recently been acquired by Urban View, a Brooklyn developer, to design the interior of 17 new buildings in Bushwick and Williamsburg. Aboody told Brownstoner.com that all 17 lobbies will contain the work of local artists, essentially becoming a “gallery space for Brooklyn artists.”

Finding affordable apartments in DUMBO Brooklyn is difficult, but to add to the stress of a new place is the money one needs to spend decorating it. After moving across the country into a 700 square foot 1-bedroom apartment at the DUMBO Lofts at 65 Washington Street in Brooklyn, I needed to buy all new everything. Trust me when I tell you that I have no clue what it takes to put an apartment together. I guess I am lucky that my friends don’t mind that I, literally, have no style.

I wish I would have heard about this guy a while ago. I would have asked him to help me decorate my place. I like the fact that he used pieces that I can actually afford, from stores where I actually shop.

Dogs Deserve a Christmas Present Too

Ultra Luxury Manhattan Apartments.

Dog-Friendly Manhattan ultra luxury apartments

 Ultra Luxury Manhattan Apartments.

When people think of New York, they usually think of Manhattan, which is an island barely 12 miles long and 2 miles wide. This island is the main tourist area in the city and where most visitors stay. Manhattan consists of many neighborhoods. New York City is very densely populated but is surprisingly dog-friendly. Although you can’t take your dog to a Broadway Show there are a surprising number of things you and your visiting or resident dog can do together.


Visitors and residents of Manhattan often want to shop the large and famous stores. In New York, many of these stores are pet friendly stores including Bloomingdales, Saks Fifth Avenue, Tiffany’s, Restoration Hardware and Polo Ralph Lauren. Please check with the individual stores before bringing your dog in, as policies in stores often do change. We have found that if you ask at a lot of New York stores they will welcome your dog. Especially smaller ones but even larger dogs on leash are often welcome. Especially dog-friendly is the Time Warner Shopping Center, an indoor mall on Columbus Circle at 8th Avenue and 59th Street.


Dog-friendly Shopping Center near your apartment in Manhattan. 

manhattan luxury studio apartments

This shopping center is at the south west corner of Central Park so it is a great place to shop following a walk in Central Park with your dog.  Also, your leashed dog can go with you to the outdoor South Street Seaport near the Brooklyn Bridge. If you want to dine with your dog in New York, you will need to find a patio restaurant with seats on the sidewalk. There are many dog-friendly restaurants, and you can ask any restaurant you see that has sidewalk seating if your dog is welcome.

One thing that dogs like to do is to walk the Brooklyn Bridge for the scenery. There are guided walking tours of lower Manhattan that welcome dogs. The Central Park carriage rides welcome dogs accompanying you. You can take your dog to the grounds of the Theodore Roosevelt Birthplace National Historic Site on East 20th Street, the General Grant National Monument and the Federal Hall National Memorial outside. Or for a closer look you can take your small dog on the Staten Island Ferry to Staten Island or any size dog on the Seastreak Ferry to New Jersey. The William Secord Art Gallery at 52 East 76th Street welcomes your leashed dog with you. But Manhattan is above all a walking town, which your dog will probably like. You can view the famous landmarks, the Empire State Building, Grand Central, Madison Square Garden and the awesome New York skyline from the street with your dog.

Off-Leash Dog Parks

New York City has more off-leash dog parks than any other city in the United States. There are off-leash dog parks in all areas of the city. The dog parks are free and no permits are required. Leashed dogs are allowed in Central Park, the huge green rectangle in the center of the map of Manhattan. The Canine Court is located in Van Cortlandt Park in the Bronx and includes an agility course. If your dog wants to swim in New York, you can go to the Prospect Park Dog Beach in Brooklyn. This is a man made concrete beach. This beach is fenced. As far as Atlantic Ocean beaches are concerned dogs are not allowed on the sand at any NYC beach from May 1 to September 30. During the rest of the year, dogs are allowed on the Sand at some of the New York Beaches, including Rockaway Beach, Coney Island and some other beaches. Leashed dogs are allowed on the boardwalks and promenade at Coney Island, Brighton, Midland, South and Manhattan Beaches year round.
