DUMBO is where you’ll find one of Brooklyn’s best alternative New York City Christmas trees. The tree stands at the Pearl Street Triangle and will be accompanied this year by a mailbox for Santa. Stationed in the Dumbo Archway, New Yorkers can submit a wishlist that can be sourced in Dumbo and will have the chance to win $100 of Dumbo Dollars, courtesy of the Dumbo Improvement District.
