The website On The Real just posted a long, informative interview with St. John Frizell, Red Hook resident and Fort Defiance owner. They chat about the state of Red Hook in the late nineties, what drew Frizell to the neighborhood before any bars had opened on Van Brunt Street, where he learned to make cocktails and opening Fort Defiance. Of course he discusses the huge challenges the neighborhood faced after Hurricane Sandy and what it took to reopen Fort Defiance. Definitely worth a listen.
