Explore Red Hook
Food, Drinks, Sweets + Ferry Rides
Since we are all staying pretty close to home these days you can still spend a day safely exploring a NYC neighborhood. Just over the river in Brooklyn, Red Hook is is accessible by the NYC Ferry (Take the South Brooklyn ferry route aka SB).
Lunch at Hometown Barbecue. Order online, there’s first come first served, distanced tables outside on the closed street. 454 Van Brunt St. Or next door, is Brooklyn Crab (24 Reed St), which usually has outdoor games but for now they have lots of outdoor seating – from the street to the 3rd floor. And the newest addition is Red Hook Tavern (329 Van Brunt St), which has also added outdoor dining.
Sweet spot: SO many options depending on your sweet tooth. One of our favorites is Baked. Or hit up Steve’s Authentic Key Lime Pie and check out the waterfront pier for some killer photos of the Statue of Liberty (185 Van Dyke St.). And there’s always the Ample Hills Factory + Museum (421 Van Brunt St.).
Note worthy stops along the way: Widow Jane Distillers, complete with roaming chickens + peacocks, yep you read that right. Widow Jane shares their home with sister company, Cacao Prieto, fine organic chocolate makers (218 Conover St. – contact them for hours).
The Van Brunt Stillhouse at 6 Bay St, has been serving weekend cocktails (and homemade hand sanitizer). Old school favorites, Rocky Sullivans(46 Beard St) and Sunny’s Bar(253 Conover St.), both known to have great live music. Street art + shops can be found throughout the neighborhood as well.
Or just bring your bike and explore the waterfront, from Ikea to the Valentino Pier!
