Red Hook

Red Hook is a working class, mixed-use neighborhood​ of residential and manufacturing zones. The majority of residents live in public housing, Red Hook East (shown) and West Houses, which is the oldest housing project.
The City Council adopted a “197-a Plan” for community regeneration on September 11, 1996. Part of the implementation of this plan includes the 2000 reopening of the old “Sullivan Street Hotel” as a public-private affordable housing project.
Launched in 2000, the Red Hook Community Justice Center is the nation's first multi-jurisdictional community court.
The neighborhood hosts the third-highest concentrat​ion of waste transfer stations in the City, and residents often complain about bad smells, and illegal truck traffic.
