Why We Love Red Hook

Red Hook One

We love Red Hook, and one of the things we truly like about the nabe is that it retains some of its flavor despite the encroachment of some popular restaurants and, of course, the big Fairway. We posted the top photo over at Curbed yesterday, but figured we'd share here too, along with this bottom photo, which is a sign a few feet down the street tacked up by the same person. We were told the sign has been ripped down by either city workers or Con Ed, but that a new one was put right back up. The fort that was once in Red Hook was called Fort Defiance, after all.
