We wanted to make everyone aware of this amazing event, if you aren’t already. Its happening this Thursday, September 24th, from 7pm-10:30pm at Atelier Roquette in red Hook. Tickets are still available here for $15.
Come nestle in a sofa or dance into the night with great bluegrass music during the NYC premiere of the band Paradise Mountain Boys from Norway – and get yourself a NY WaterStory!
Produced by PortSide NewYork as part of our ongoing Red Hook WaterStories. You will be surrounded by projections of vintage film and photos on the brick walls as you soak up the maritime history of Norwegians in Red Hook. Norwegians were one of the major immigrant groups in Brooklyn from the late 19th to early 20th century. They were a major presence on NYC’s working waterfront and on historic ship, the tanker MARY A. WHALEN. They were first concentrated in Red Hook, Brooklyn.
