Warm weather boosts business in Dumbo

DUMBO -

Spring finally arrived Tuesday in Brooklyn as temperatures reached into the 70s with sunny skies.

Brooklyn residents were out and about enjoying the weather and the fact that they finally didn't need a jacket. The influx of foot traffic helped businesses throughout Dumbo.

From food stands to surf shops to pet stores, business owners say they were happy to have the extra business. 

Frank Diaz, owner of Frank's Perfect Paws, says the sunny weather is a win-win for business. He says since the pets are outside getting dirty it's great for him.

Wednesday is expected to be sunny with temperatures in the 80s.
