The corner of Washington and Water streets is Selfie Central.

So many people stand in the middle of the cobblestones on Washington Street to snap photos that you’d think it’s a pedestrian-only street. It’s not.

The historic red-brick DUMBO buildings on either side of the block make a corridor that frames the Manhattan Bridge.

And the blue-green supports on the bridge make a frame for the Empire State Building. Take a careful look the next time you’re standing in the middle of the street with all the other selfie-takers, and you’ll see that iconic skyscraper off in the distance.

Of course we’ve previously published pix of  this visitors’ hot spot. But we were in the neighborhood the other day and just couldn’t resist taking new photos.
