Red Hook, NY
A delicious afternoon walk in Red Hook
Kings Coffee37 Carroll St, Brooklyn, NY 11231
A tiny, but thoughtfully outfitted coffee shop run out of a garage on Carroll Street. It's the perfect spot to pause on a hot summer day for an iced Americano. The owner, Dom, is a great guy with interesting stories about growing up in Brooklyn.
Red Hook Lobster Pound284 Van Brunt St, Brooklyn, NY 11231
On the way into Red Hook, stop at the recently expanded/renovated Lobster Pound for lunch. I love the Tuscan Lobster Roll, which is made with basil vinaigrette instead of mayo.
Pier 44 Waterfront GardenConover St, Brooklyn, NY 11231
While there's not much 'garden' to speak of, it's worth the walk for the spectacular views of lower Manhattan of the Statue of Liberty.
Fort Defiance365 Van Brunt St, Brooklyn, NY 11231
The perfect spot for a late afternoon drink. They have an amzing selection of wines as well as some of the best mixed drinks in South Brooklyn.
