Red Hook

One of Brooklyn’s many former industrial hubs, Red Hook’s long underused and abandoned waterfront warehouses are now seeing a transformation into luxury apartments. Notoriously isolated from public transit, the area still clings to its industrial charm, with modern neighborhood additions like the IKEA store starkly contrasting to the adjacent hulk of the Red Hook Grain Terminal — a long unused maritime facility that has served as the set for many a film and music video.
