If you love cheesy puns & local art, this is the event for you! (I kid- I love cheesy puns.)
The Red Hook Homes (formerly Red Hook Co-ops?) has opened its doors to 35 families, with an innovative model of affordable housing that will allow for 20 market rate units to be sold in the coming months.
A project of the Fifth Avenue Committee (FAC), it is the largest affordable homeownership opportunity in the history of Red Hook, according to Michelle de la Uz, the FAC’s executive director, who noted that it is also the single largest housing development project that the FAC has completed in its 32-year history.
“Here in Red Hook” is a photoblog run by South Brooklyn Community High School’s own Andy Vernon-Jones. It looks like the blog is coming to an end, but not before a final month of pictures.
If you’re a young person, age 15-21, we hope you’ll be at the first session of the In Transition Workshop this Saturday (info/applications available here).
Everyone else, though, check out the Harvest Fest down on the Added Value farm! 10am – 5pm, rain or shine. The day will include:
- [their] “pick your own” pumpkin patch — carve them right here or bring them home.
- Kids activities including live animals to pet, face painting, balloon hats, and a scavenger hunt.
- Live music and performances by Bomba Yo! The City Billies, Professor Louis, The Broken Arrowz, Rebel Diaz and more.
- Great Food provided by The Good Fork, iCi, Rice, Kevin’s and the Lobster Pound.
- A Farmers Market featuring locally grown produce and hand made products.
- Cooking demonstrations with local seasonal food.
Get the rest of the details here.
A lot going on this week in the neighborhood. Here’s a mini-round-up of Red Hook news from the web:
- RHI’s Taste of Red Hook was this week, and NY 1 news was there.
- The 4th Annual Red Hook Film Festival lineup was announced.
- The City’s “Comprehensive Waterfront Plan” is open to public input, at an upcoming meeting (10/12) and on the web.
- The city may be testing out wind power in Red Hook?
- DTE’s Angels & Accordions is tomorrow (more on that later today)
From yesterday’s “Buy/Sell Red Hook” flea market, put on by RHED & Friends of PS 15:
“If I’m not in Red Hook, I’m not interested in Brooklyn.”
OK, a little extreme from my point of view, but gotta respect Red Hook’s own (even if she’s currently in Mexico) Lenell Smothers.
Is there a single resident of Red Hook, current or former, who generates more news just by being themself (with the possible exclusion of Carmelo Anthony)?
We’ve had a bunch of posts in the last year about transit in Red Hook. The B61 bus was cut in half (shorter wait times!), the B77 was eliminated (longer wait times!), and various plans for trolley service have been championed and set aside.
Which made it kind of sad when Bob Diamond, one of the earliest and most stalwart proponents of an above-ground trolley servicing Red Hook, announced earlier this month that he would be hanging ’em up in his long-running fight.
Well, according to a story in today’s Brooklyn Eagle, Mr. Diamond is back at it. Inspired, surely, by the release of $300,000 for a trolley feasibility study (money secured by Congresswoman Nydia M. Velázquez), he’s back on the advocacy trail.
Coming from someone who commutes to Red Hook every day (a trip that takes between 40 and 75 minutes…), alternative modes of transit can’t be explored soon enough. So let’s stay tuned to how this issue develops, and tip our hats to Mr. Diamond, Congresswoman Velázquez, and anyone else who’s thinking creatively about how to improve the lives of Brooklynites.
