Red Hook

A tucked away, waterfront neighborhood with small-town charm.

Red Hook is not your usual Brooklyn neighborhood. This quirky waterfront destination feels more like a small town than a big-city neighborhood.The bars and restaurants are mostly run by locals, and people say hello to one another on the street. Down along the water you’ll find hulking warehouses that have stood since Red Hook was a shipping destination -- many of them now home to loft apartments or the massive Fairway supermarket. (Red Hook is also home to New York City’s only IKEA.) Red Hook juts out into the New York Harbor, just across from Governor’s Island, and the neighborhood’s piers and parks offer great views of both the Statue of Liberty and Lower Manhattan. Arriving by ferry is one of the best ways to get to Red Hook -- its closest subway stop is in Carroll Gardens.
