About Red Hook Real Estate
Just across the way from Governors Island is a sleepy little seaside neighborhood of Red Hook. Red Hook is the ideal location for the artist who enjoys working on solitude as no direct subway access isolates it from the rest of New York. However, Red Hook’s artistic reputation is beginning to gain wide recognition. Often compared more to a seaside village than a bustling metropolitan neighborhood, Red Hook’s brine-covered signs remind its inhabitants of a time gone by. Quaint cafes and quiet bars provide the neighborhood’s main forms of nightlife, as Red Hook is more known for simple forms of entertainment, such as taking a dip in the local swimming pool.
Red Hook is the only part of Brooklyn and New York City where you can get a full-frontal view of the Statue of Liberty, which is oriented to salute France – its gifter.
Red Hook Transportation
Red Hook lacks a direct subway line, which is actually one of its main appeals to its residents – especially ones of the artistic community. The neighborhood’s relative isolation and open space allow artists to create freely without distraction. The closest metro station lies adjacent in Carroll Gardens at either Carroll Street or Smith–Ninth Streets stations. The B61 bus line and B57 line act as the main form of public transportation in connecting Red Hook to the rest of Brooklyn. Also, IKEA offers a free shuttle service running to and from nearby subway stations that’s utilized by both shoppers and nonshoppers alike.
