Thanks to a new crop of restaurants and bars, the Dumbo waterfront is the buzziest spot to be in Brooklyn right now. 1 Hotel Brooklyn has taken full advantage of their location—a thin strip of land jutting into the water—and constructed the building entirely of reflective glass and steel. A local- and sustainably- driven project, much of the maritime-themed interior furnishings were made right here by Brooklyn artisans like Uhuru, even using reclaimed wood from the beloved Domino Sugar Factory. The end result means each of the 194 rooms have a Scandinavian-style vibe with floor-to-ceiling windows looking out across the water onto Manhattan. The real highlight is the rooftop pool, which juts right out onto the East River.
