Across the street, Fairway Market is a notoriously busy supermarket bringing in an ever-increasing amount of visitors and daily shoppers. Brooklyn Crab and Hometown Bar-B-Que are a few steps away, frequently drawing crowds for their food and drink, especially during warmer weather.
Often exaggerated as a significant issue, transportation to and from Red Hook is easier than you’d think. Your business’ employees have many options whether it be to come to work via NYC Ferry, bus, biking down the Brooklyn Waterfront Greenway, or by car. While the subway isn’t the best way to travel here, it is within walking distance. On the other hand, in terms of distribution of product, 459 Van Brunt St. is close to the BQE, Battery Tunnel, and other major NYC thoroughfares, a business can quickly receive and distribute goods daily, via a 16′ high, 10′ wide street-level loading bay which opens directly to Van Brunt St.
