Check out the Hook…

Today’s photos are of my ride to Fairway in Red Hook, Brooklyn.

I will be going back soon to take more shots of this cool little neighborhood.

A little info on Red Hook…

Red Hook in Brooklyn is a surprising neighborhood tucked along an old industrial waterfront.

It’s chock-a-block with refreshing views of both the water and southern tip of Manhattan, dedicated local residents, and interesting venues. Red Hook makes for a great day trip from Manhattan for tourists and visitors, and an interesting place for Brooklyn residents to explore.

Red Hook in Brooklyn is more than your typical Brooklyn neighborhood. It’s a work in progress, defined by a mixture of light industry, open space, residential enclaves and a still palpable sense of urban pioneering. The population density here is lower than in most of Manhattan, so it can seem, by comparison, very quiet.
