Captain America's HQ: Red Hook

So, the newest installment of the Captain America comic book has a sniper killing the superhero, but that's not why we're writing this. Superheroes are a little off topic for us. No, an Associated Press story about his (possible) demise contains the following tidbit:
From a headquarters in Brooklyn's shabby dockside Red Hook neighborhood, he embarked on new adventures with the Marvel cast of characters.

Whether this had anything to do with Red Hook's recent real estate boomlet is unclear.
Of course, the hundreds of news stories about Captain America's "death" focus on his demise. But we'd rather focus on Red Hook and say: The writer called it a "boomlet" rather than a "boom"?
