nycbikecommuter asked: I have to explore red hook for a school project. Do you have any ideas of interesting things to photograph there?
The piers down by Fairway are pretty interesting. There is a little museum boat that is open to the public and some great views of the statue of liberty and staten island.
Defontes (Columbia and Luquer) is a little sandwich shop that famous in Red Hook. It just got a new paint job and is very NY Italian inside.
There is a building with a big “R” on it that is iconic Red Hook material.
You can get a good view of it around Delevan and Richards.
The neighborhood is still pretty industrial and in repair from the hurricane, but there is a lot of good gritty old architecture and some interesting graffiti.
