New Deal New York: Red Hook Brooklyn

Janes Walk

Led By Deborah Gardner, Roosevelt House at Hunter College

President Franklin Roosevelt rescued the US from the Great Depression through his New Deal programs which employed people to build public works, restore the Great Plains and national parks, and make life better for ordinary Americans. In Red Hook, the New Deal built housing, a pool and recreation center, and a large new park. See these projects and learn more about Red Hook history, the impact of Hurricane Sandy, and the future.
