Dumboer (inhabitant of Dumbo, Brooklyn)

"Dumboer” is the name of an inhabitant of Dumbo, in the borough of Brooklyn. The name “Dumboer” (also often given as “DUMBOer") has been cited in print since at least 2007.

An inhabitant of Dumbo is also called a “Dumboite.”

Dumbo, an acronym for Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass, is a neighborhood in the New York City 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 that continues east from the Manhattan Bridge to the Vinegar Hill area. The neighborhood is part of Brooklyn Community Board 2.

That could change very soon. The USPS has been looking for space to set up shop, and soon, DUMBO-ites (DUMBOers? DUMBOnions? Or just plain DUMBOs?) will be able to buy stamps, weigh packages, and do all those other postal things that currently require schlepping up a big hill to the main post office on Cadman Plaza East.
