Red Hook Real Estate

As much Maine fishing village as artsy urban waterfront neighborhood, Red Hook is one of the most unique places in any city on the Eastern seaboard. Tumbleweeds dribble across the street on cold winter evenings. Welders sculpt masterpieces in studios next to glassblowers creating public works projects for cities in India. Chefs at The Good Fork concoct new ways to prepare a leek. This is a true creative neighborhood, with its own local services and strong community feel.

Most people know Red Hook for Ikea and Fairway, the big box brands that anchor the neighborhood's waterways. But Van Brunt Street and Connover Street are the places to be. There are chocolate bars, florists, landscape architects, wine stores, jewelry shops, and antiques. Local bars draw people on bikes and motorcycles. Playgrounds are full of children playing basketball.

Carmelo Anthony learned to dribble on these playgrounds. Jay-Z threw Beyoncé an anniversary party in a waterfront events space. The New York lobster roll craze began in Red Hook. The small streets have carriage houses, townhouses, and apartment buildings. Subways are a far-walk away, but busses take you from downtown Brooklyn and Park Slope through the heart of the neighborhood. Plus, people have cars in Red Hook. How else would they haul their painting supplies, restoration projects, and design materials home?

CLASSICS AND INSIDE TIPS:

Dine: The Good Fork. A pioneer of the Brooklyn culinary explosion,

Do: Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition. Over 500 artists exhibit their work in this historic space that once warehoused exports coming into the Brooklyn. Open weekends from 1 to 6 p.m.
