Red Hook WaterStories: Talk with a Historian

  • Red Hook Library 7 Wolcott Street Brooklyn, NY, 11231 United States (map)

On social media and in person at the Red Hook Public Library, join the conversation about Red Hook history. We will be asking questions to Red Hook nostalgia groups on Facebook, asking questions in the library, and sharing between the digital and physical conversations. Come tell your stories, and your family stories, of living, working or playing in and around the waters of Red Hook.  Hung out on the Long Pier? Swam at Edison Beach? Worked at Todd's or Busheys? Fishing? Hurricane Sandy? Any neighborhood story that has a water element we want to know.  Don't have a story? Come follow along, ask questions, enjoy the anecdotes with the PortSide team working on our digital museum Red Hook WaterStories.  Part of the “MARY Month of May” festival in honor of the 80th birthday or our ship MARY A. WHALEN.
