ARTY, SPARKLING, SPIRIT
Sparkling, artsy, and spirited is this thrilling neighborhood devoted to young families and its sustainable flair. This waterfront neighborhood has sweeping views of New York Harbor, great seafood and an industrial aesthetic held over from a previous life. Citi Bike docks and ferry service connecting Red Hook to downtown Brooklyn and lower Manhattan make it easy to go exploring after you’ve enjoyed some key lime pie, fresh lobster, bbq or comfort food from the local eateries. It’s easy to spend an entire day in Red Hook as you visit Fairway for large scale grocery shopping and Ikea for housewares and some Swedish meatballs!
These cobblestone streets and warehouses are now home to museums, restaurants and homespun shops including small business pop-ups, community gardens, galleries and design studios for creatives. Along with a string of adorable boutiques, distilleries, and breweries which all add to the artisanal vibe, while keeping a solid community and sustainability, which after all, is the main focus in Red Hook.
