Don't be a Dumbo and book a New York hostel for arts festival
Art lovers looking for something a bit different on their forthcoming trip to the US might want to check out the Dumbo Arts Festival.

It is a long way to go to Brooklyn just for the night so booking a New York hostel might be worth considering in order to have the chance to experience the full vibes of the three-day event.

The spectacle gets underway on September 24th until the 26th and is set to feature poets in the streets reciting poems, DJs spinning their decks and an array of art illustrations.

Those with children might be interested in the kids puppetry that will be taking place and the children may also be keen to see a variety of artists creating murals.

It may be worth booking a New York hostel as soon as possible as the festival - which features more than 150 studios and over 40 organisations - attracts around 150,000 visitors over its three days.

Moreover, the organisers have made changes to this year's event, such as making it multi-disciplinary and they will be awarding prizes to artists based on their work.

Culture vultures might be encouraged to attend the event by the news that music will also be present at the extravaganza, as well as dance, film, theatre and literature.

Individuals who are set to visit the spectacle may like to book an extra night at their hostel in New York and travel to Albany for the City Art Fair on September 29th at Tricentennial Park.
