Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass is a neighborhood in the borough of Brooklyn. It encompasses two sections; one located between the Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridges, which connect Brooklyn to Manhattan across the East River, and another which continues east from the Manhattan Bridge to the Vinegar Hill area. Jerry Seinfeld once referred to DUMBO on a late-night talk show appearance, joking that it stands for "Down Under Manhattan Bridge," but that New Yorkers arbitrarily added the "O" at the end because they did not want to have a neighborhood called "DUMB."
Fade in. Glistening cobblestone streets flow between factory warehouses and huge artist lofts. Our protagonist walks through this discreet and empty neighborhood observing Manhattan's skyline, the silence deafened by a train on the Manhattan Bridge. The sun is trying to hide behind Manhattan causing long oblique shadows. Through a crack in a boarded window is a sculptor passionate about his work. Thirsty, our protagonist tastes a creamy hot chocolate nearby and then strolls through an innovative art gallery. People watch him, observe and smile at this man with headphones who seems so comfortable in his grace. He is...the Soundwalker. Fade out. Narrated by Asa Mader
