If you thought that all the waterside neighborhood of DUMBO had to offer was the Jacques Torres Chocolate Factory and the offices of The Brooklyn Papers, and you still weren’t enticed to disembark the F train at York Street, there’s more temptation now than ever to visit.

To entice art aficionados and shoppers Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass, residential and commercial developer Two Trees has organized "Shop DUMBO" on Jan. 28, from noon to 7 pm.

Among the galleries slated to participate in the day-long open house is the Brooklyn Arts Council, which will unveil its first-ever juried exhibition of works on paper, "Making Your Mark: On Paper" at 55 Washington St. at Front Street, Suite 218. Among the works on display will be Christopher Walsh’s "Fountain 2" (pictured). From 4-6 pm, the artists will be on hand to meet and greet.

While shopping maps are available at all of DUMBO’s shops and galleries, the public is encouraged to begin exploring at 111 Front St. and 68 Jay St. For more information, visit
