In midst of our hectic days, Ryan and I took a quick stroll through Red Hook, Brooklyn a few weeks back - discovering the area but mostly because I needed to try out the Red Hook Lobster Pound. The lobster rolls are filled with enormous pieces of delicious lobster. If you're a lobster lover like me, you absolutely need to check it out (if you haven't already).
Red Hook is home to great little shops and restaurants (and a fantastic fairway) & a picturesque view of our lady liberty.
Side note: the waste receptacles too awesome! (shown below)
Since this trip, we've returned once more because I raved about it for days straight. Delicious!
