Lobsters in Red Hook

(And other graphic pun possibilities)

Another entry to the long  line of unique businesses that call Red Hook home.

Pardon me for Asking has the most extensive (that I’ve seen) rundown on very-soon-to-the-nabe fresh lobster storefront, The Red Hook Lobster Pound.

More recognition for the RHCJC

Judge Calabrese’s alma matter with a piece on The Justice Center’s impressive work.

…Red Hook saw the largest drop in major crimes in the city in 2006 and 2007.

The Red Hook Community Justice Center is increasingly being looked at as a model of justice working for a neighborhood and the people that live in it.  As the first multi-jurisdictional community court in the country, it’s faced high expectations and continually impressed those in- and outside of Red Hook.

Stay tuned for more news from the Justice Center mid-April, as they recognize some of the rising stars in the community’s youth.  Details to come.

New blog in the Red Hook e-scape

Also an addendum to the previous post-

Adam Armstrong, quoted in the aforementioned New York Observer article, has begun his own blog- A View from the Hook– possibly solely about port emissions in Red Hook?  Maybe with a broader focus?

It’s unclear for now, but stay tuned for more from an obviously concerned and conscientious neighbor.

2 Weeks to See Joel Sokolov & Hugh Williams @ Kentler Int’l Drawing Space

Kentler Inernational Drawing Space’s current exhibition run until March 22- leaving you two weekends to see the work of these two solo artists.  Like all (most? all?) exhibits at Kentler, the show is FREE.  For details visit the Kentler website.


Either a horrifying place or a super-hot Coffee Roasting company on its way to Red Hook. Stumptown has been slowly spreading throughout Brooklyn, and you might’ve heard about the outpost they’re opening in Red Hook.  Either way, a good article from the place that would know them best gives a nice background to their entrance to the neighborhood:

The roastery in Red Hook will offer free weekend tastings and, more important, will give Stumptown the freshness that comes with having beans roasted on-site daily. Sorenson said he eventually would like to open a cafe in Red Hook in order to create relationships and have a presence in the neighborhood.

If nothing else, they chose a nice picture for their homepage.
