Industrial buildings and harbor vistas are the ideal backdrops for Red Hook residents to showcase their style. Even the most put together denizens don’t look like they’re trying when pairing clogs with socks, nor do they look out of place next to the guy who hasn’t washed his coveralls in a year. We like to think this results from living in a neighborhood that’s off the grid, a place where fashion tends to be practical as well as stylish because you’ll need to walk or bike a long way to get anywhere—but you’ll look good while doing so.
