Far from ordinary, Red Hook’s rugged history, newfound variety and gritty charm give this New York City neighborhood a look and feel uniquely its own. Situated on the southwestern point of the Borough of Brooklyn, Red Hook enjoys unique water access with direct sight lines of the Statue of Liberty and New York Bay. Strongly anchored in a maritime shipping tradition and status as a destination port during the mid-1800 and 1900s, Red Hooks’ waterfront harkens back to the area’s industrial past. While Red Hook’s recent history has been met with turbulent seas, particularly in the wake of Hurricane Sandy, today the neighborhood is both home to a diverse, tight knit community and has become a new destination for technology companies, entrepreneurs, artisans, restaurateurs, distillers and craft beer makers, and creative types. With cobblestone streets and converted Civil War-era warehouses offering distinctive office space, retail storefronts, and stylish residential living, Red Hook is to be explored and considered. And water taxi service now connects Red Hook to Lower Manhattan and Downtown Brooklyn, offering a new level of convenience for the area.
