Art in its myriad forms took over DUMBO’s streets, garages, galleries and studios this weekend at the DUMBO Arts Festival, and thousands visited the neighborhood to take in the sights and sounds.

Arts from different cultures mixed in the streets, while video, musical performances and poetry readings filled the Manhattan Bridge Archway and Plaza. The Ship of Tolerance anchored in the harbor, StoryCorp’s trailer collected attendees’ stories, a joyous Bubbles of Hope procession spilled over the entire neighborhood, and local artists opened their seldom-seen studios to the public.
