Week twenty-five: Red Hook

Joy, head of the Brooklyn Collection, picked my next destination. (And then she helped me with my research.)

Now synonymous with IKEA and Fairway, Red Hook was long known as a gritty industrial area. Despite the dearth of public transit (the B61 is the only service available) the area is becoming popular with property-hunters.

As a runner, I’m familiar with the Red Hook track. I’m looking forward to a more leisurely trip this week.

Funny story: when Joy reached into the hat, the first card she pulled out was … Crown Heights. I had forgotten to take it out of the mix.

    Ah! I love Red Hook – one of the most unassuming Brooklyn neighborhoods. And easy parking too!

    Next time you’re in Red Hook on a Saturday night check out Sonny’s for whiskey and bluegrass jam sessions.
