I've been living in Red Hook since I was 7 years old. Nothing in this community changes and sadly college is the only way out the hood for me . I feel like I might end up dead if I stay here. The people are friendly everywhere, the local stores and markets. It's all like family. There are only 2 public schools, 2 charter schools and one private school in Red Hook. One of the charter school are located in one of the public school's building. They have been locaed there for 9 years now because they can't afford a building of their own. Its a elementary school on the first floor, a middle school on the second floor and a high school on the third. I wish want the best for my community and the future generations behind me. I want to give back to the people and motivate them.

Red Hook Brooklyn (Near IKEA) continues to be described as "up and coming" neighborhood, however, that is subject to interpretation. There is such a large divide in population. If you are fortunate to live in private apartments/ homes, you more than likely pay an outrageous amount of rent. There are some activities and night life but nothing to go crazy over. If you live just a few blocked over in the Projects than you know the neighborhood is typically really dirty with piles of garbage everywhere and not all that safe.
I love living in this neighborhood. It's an industrial area that has thriving local businesses, non-for-profit organizations, and a family friendly environment.
