This is Part 2 of a two-part series. Part 1 is here.

A few weekends ago, the DH and I decided to break out the “big” cameras and go for an old fashioned photo crawl. We haven’t been on one of those in ages.

Red Hook is crazy scenic – lots of texture, grit and graffiti to shoot; and lots of art and a strongly independent vibe to soak up. This neighborhood has been (and continues to be) a lot of things – the very least of which is home to IKEA. Red Hook might be a pain in the ass to get to via the subway, but it’s bustling full of great food, indy shops, artisans doing what they do best, and green spaces. Definitely worth checking out, at the very least.
