Tiny DUMBO is becoming a big NYC tourist attraction. It offers visitors world-class views of Manhattan and the fabulous Brooklyn Bridge Park. It's the Brooklyn neighborhood that's closest to the Brooklyn Bridge; many people who walk the bridge stop here for a drink or to stroll around its historic streets. DUMBO is home to several eclectic cultural institutions including BargeMusic and St. Ann's Warehouse.

And, it boasts a handful of well-known food establishments: you can enjoy pizza at ​Grimaldi's and chocolate at Jacques Torres, not to mention fine dining at the River Cafe and a great bar scene at Superfine.

There's almost no street parking in this neighborhood. So it may be best to walk or take public transportation to DUMBO, especially if you're attending a big cultural event like a concert in the park.

But if you do drive, or want to park the car before or after walking the Brooklyn Bridge, where in the world do you park a car in DUMBO?
