Red Hook 

Red Hook is one of New York's oldest neighborhoods.  The area offers great views of Lower Manhatan and the Statue of Liberty.  Take a walk down Red Hook's cobblestone streets and take a trip back in time - there is much history to be found in the community.  Valentino Pier offers some of the best views in Red Hook and there is a nearby grassy park and picnic area perfect for a weekend outing or weekday lunch date.  Stop by the Waterfront Museum and Showboat Barge for educational programs for children and further east, you will find a large public swimming pool at the Red Hook Recreation.  Red Hook offers little in terms of transportation, being there is no subway line.  However, there is a NY Water taxi which ferries passengers.
