It's that time of year when the tiny, tony district of Dumbo becomes the furiously beating heart of Brooklyn, if only for one weekend. And, after the neighborhood was severely flooded by hurricane Sandy last autumn, causing many of its street-level storefronts and galleries to close indefinitely, it was especially heartwarming to see all local operations fully recovered, restored and revived for Dumbo Arts Festival 2013. ...
