About Red Hook Neighborhood

Neighborhood Map image

Once a prosperous shipping and port area in the early 20th century, Red Hook is located on a peninsula at the southern edge of Downtown Brooklyn. It is well-known for its cobblestone streets, historic buildings and waterfront views. The IKEA store has been a valuable addition in that it attracts many visitors to explore the area. Artisanal businesses like distilleries, chocolate factories, one brewery and one winery have taken up shop here as well. Red Hook has many cuisine and bar options, including Sunny’s Bar - memorialized by Anthony Bourdain on his show No Reservations. Year round art exhibitions are available among the neighborhood’s many galleries. The Waterfront Barge Museum, which is docked at Pier 44, is a great opportunity to learn about Red Hook’s maritime history.
