Dumbo is quickly becoming New York City’s “Silicon Beach,” according to Fortune magazine, which ranked the six “hottest” tech companies that have blossomed in the neighborhood, in a list that heralds the neighborhood as an up-and-coming tech center. Companies like digital ad agency Big Spaceship and Etsy, a popular online “hobbypreneur” site, are among the “hot” digital companies named in the neighborhood. Dumbo, which has roughly 65 tech companies within a five-block radius, is poised to become the “New York Digital District,” industry experts say, as more start-ups flock to the region. [Fortune]
