Steadily evolving from its rough roots, the face of Red Hook is changing as artists and youngsters congregate in this industrial and isolated maritime neighbourhood. Although Red Hook’s artistic reputation is gaining recognition, its entertainment scene is still finding its sea legs. Other Brooklyn neighbourhoods promise livelier activity, but they are best reached by bike or car as Red Hook lacks a direct subway connection.See places to stay Save this neighbourhood
Seaside Influence and an Artistic Outlook
...a unique little neighbourhood. Loved the local swimming pool and the great cafes and bars close by. Red Hook is just over the water from Manhattan and combines an interesting mix of portside 'industria' with public housing and the artsy middle class."

A New York City Neighbourhood of Bygone Times
Red Hook is a unique neighborhood- it's near the water with several piers and fantastic views of the bay and the Statue of Liberty, with coffee shops, cafes, bars, etc. It's an incredible corner of the city, check out Van Brunt Street on Yelp!"
