IMAGES OF RED HOOK is a visual representation of this unique part of Brooklyn but is much more than simply a gallery of photos. Containing over 120 color images of industrial sites (some long-gone), urban mosaics, close-ups, panoramas, a sunset or two, and cranes, lots of cranes - this book provides an in-depth view of this fascinating and vibrant place.

The introduction features a brief history of Red Hook, from its role in the Revolutionary War, through times of decay and neglect, to its current renaissance. Selected captions provide informative, paragraph-long descriptions of the history of the location. Additionally, there are many observations and recollections excerpted from interviews with dozens of people who live and work in Red Hook. These personal and reflective quotes reveal unique perspectives and are an endearing element of the book.

Through the eyes of Thomas Rupolo and the voices of both new and old members of this community, IMAGES OF RED HOOK explores the past, present and future of this neighborhood.
