Commissioned in 1915 by Kirkman & Son Soap Company, 37 Bridge Street is the best looking 96 year old in Brooklyn. In classic daylight factory style, this simple brick façade building is representative of the factory architecture of its time and remains a neighborhood icon.
Alexander Kirkman's decision to move his company to Brooklyn grew the business ten fold, putting Kirkman & Sons on the map as one of the country's leading soap producers. To this day, the original manufacturing cylices remain in the building, and the logo recalls the soap's archetypal octagon shape, preserving the family name and its place in history.
Clean lines, locally-sourced millwork from Avalon Custom Woodworking, and baltic birch wood detailing turn even the most exotic chefs into locavores. Sleek black LG or Kitchen-Aid refrigerators have plenty of room for the night's Vinegar Hill House leftovers, and energy-smart GE or Whirlpool microwaves are perfect for reheating them the next day. Rather show off your own culinary skills? Stainless steel Bertazzoni ranges can help with that. And for the lucky diners, powerful Bosch dishwashers make clean-up duty almost too easy.

If Alexander Kirkman were alive today, he might recognize the cobblestone streets and sweeping views of the East River, but DUMBO has changed dramatically since the days of ships and factories. Today, the neighborhood, recently named the city's 90th historic district by the Landmarks Preservation Society, boasts a bustling art scene, a wealth of foodie-famed restaurants, and enough shopping to consider taking out a second mortgage.

According to Brooklyn's L Magazine, DUMBO is the best place to spot a celebrity (corner of Front Street and Manhattan Bridge), and the best place to plan a blind date (dinner at River Café, dessert at Jacques Torres, a stroll through the new and improved Brooklyn Bridge Park).

But, the neighborhood is equally enjoyed by those not in a scene from Annie Hall. Residents spend their days perusing the talent housed in the Galapagos Art Space and St. Anne's Warehouse, picking up coffee at the DUMBO General Store to fuel the blocks-long wait at Grimaldi's, wedding-watching in the park and skimming the massive selection at Powerhouse Books. And with Brooklyn Heights right around the corner, you can schedule endless inter-area play dates.

With all its new luxuries, DUMBO retains elements of its industrial roots, giving the neighborhood an authenticity and personality entirely its own. Call it old-fashionable.
