Red Hook Ho

I can’t believe it actually got up to 70º today. It’s hard to believe that a month ago it snowed.

Our friends Ed and Monica have just bought a townhouse in Red Hook and we rode with them as we explored their new neighborhood. Red Hook was for many, many years, a dilapidated, dockyard area in Brooklyn. Now with the real estate mania, even such out of the way parts of the city have become desirable. Though far from ‘gentrified’, never the less, we couldn’t believe we saw a sign reading, “Coming Soon: Starbucks”.

I’ve been dropping my book out around town. I figure if we ever want to own an apartment in the city, we’re going to need to make some serious cheddar.
