Red Hook is fast becoming worthy of its surname, with many attractions that have hooked New Yorkers and tourists alike to this historic Brooklyn seaside enclave. The neighborhood has the feel of a rusty Montauk, bathed by the waters of the lower bay and vistas of low-slung factories, cobble stone streets and docks that stretch out nearly close enough to grasp the raised arm of the Statue of Liberty. Ancient fishermen still cast their lines with the durability of rent-controlled tenants. Longshoremen long for better days. IKEA and Fairway serve as tent pole merchants beside all those beachy bars and seafaring watering holes. The water taxi makes a pit stop in the sweet spot between Governor’s Island, Red Hook and the Statue of Liberty herself.
