Red Hook

In our return to Brooklyn with this 8x10 pen and ink drawing, we are looking down Delavan Street towards Richards Street in the section known as Red Hook.  It's early in the morning, and quite cold, but at least the sun is shining.  The name "Red Hook" comes from the Dutch for the point ("hoek") of land with red soil extending into the sea.  I don't think the original red hook is still there.
