Red Hook with Michele Carlo

Spent the day Saturday at an Arts Fair in Red Hook, Brooklyn. I had never been to this place before, it's like a million miles from anything. On the map, it looks closer to Manhattan than it does to the closest subway stop in Brooklyn. I met Michele there because she had hired me to videotape her project she is doing for the Brooklyn Council on the Arts. If I can capture and edit that footage in time, it will be my PBNYC on YouTube for tomorrow. I'd put captions on the photos but Blogger has made that so incredibly time-consuming and difficult and annoying, plus it is already over 90 degrees today, so the pix will have to speak for themselves.
Afterward, Michele took me to buy me a Guinness at a little seaman's bar that dated back to the 1800's. Lots of very faded pix of naked ladies all over the walls.
These days they have art showings and bands playing in the back.
It's a very weird neighborhood -- thanks to Michele for showing me around!
