A Night in the Life, Part 5

I'm not sure why, but I found Red Hook to be by far the scariest place I've wandered around this week. I'm not sure if it's the spooky looking factories, or the completely deserted streets, but I got a huge case of the heeby-jeebies. It didn't stop me from hopping a couple of fences to shoot the piers, but my knees were shaking the whole time.

Great shots... those parts of Red Hook always scare me, too.

yeah- i feel like i captured a certain slice of red hook- but i think i missed out on some stuff. for instance, i considered shooting the giant pool over by the projects, or the ball fields, or some more factory streets, but to tell the truth, i was glad to get the hell out of there.

Superb work. Off the, er, hook.

darnit... i love a huge case of the heeby-jeebies!! let me know when you feel like hopping the fence up to the highline during/after a snowfall... been wanting to do that for ages.

A Red Hook night take a little time to get used to. I've been here for a few years and everyonce in a while I turn a corner and I wonder who/what I will see. At least now, the stray dogs are pretty much gone.

Very nice pictures. Red Hook is a wonderful place to photograph once the sun is down and the truck drivers go home. Although that is pretty cool too.

excellent. i love that last one.

I thought I venture the web and find the neighborhood I grew up in during the 60's thru the 70's. I find it funny to hear the comments regarding how scary it seems. You should try living there like I did, then the fear of places would be think of the past
