[In-person tour] Once the beating heart of the shipping industry in New York, Red Hook’s streets still hold many places that speak to its maritime past. The prospect of numerous jobs led to the migration of African Americans, Italians, Portuguese, and Norwegians who made the neighborhood their own. Previously labeled by Life magazine as “the crack capital of the world,” this defiant and resourceful neighborhood has withstood economic depression and climate change to preserve its history and create a new future. This tour with Zack Rhodes will visit unique sites like the Robotic Church, longshoreman haunts, and a museum housed on a barge.
