The most photographed block in DUMBO will be the scene of cheerful inanity this Friday, Sept. 27, as thousands of parachute-wearing toy elephants are hurled off rooftops for the amusement of the crowds in the street below.
For those who enjoy a little wager, a guess-where-the-elephant-will-fall contest could pay off. Top prizes including a $1,000 shopping spree and a private rooftop party for 10 at Time Out Market New York.
The drop is part of the DUMBO Improvement District’s third annual Washington Street block party, which runs from 4-9 p.m. Events include toy elephant decorating, goodies from DUMBO eateries, art, virtual reality and performances.
