Red Hook Homes Opens Doors

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.

Check out the details at the Brooklyn Daily Eagle.

“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.
