RealTours: A Day in Red Hook with Jane Herro.

Jane moved to Red Hook a little over a year ago, and absolutely loves living here. She is originally from the midwest, and enjoys how her new home gives her that same neighborhood vibe. Here are her favorite spots in Red Hook and the surrounding areas.

Morning: Baked is my first stop! Stumptown Coffee is always a plus, and the biscuits are delicious.

Brunch:  Homemade is my brunch pick.  First of all, the space is gorgeous and the food  is simple, fresh and always good.

Daytime: Riding bikes down to the tennis courts at Van Voorhees Park on Congress is my favorite thing to do in nice weather and after a few games, heading to the Dumbo Shake Shack for a cheeseburger and strawberry shake.

Dinner:  The Good Fork on Van Brunt and June on Court and Baltic are my two go-to’s for dinner. Both have awesome backyards and the food is always great.

After Dark:  Sunny’s on a weekday is my favorite; the backyard with a beer in summer and in the back room with a hot toddy in winter. Also, Wednesday nights at Fort Defiance for dollar oysters. …but to be honest, I’ll most likely be on my couch with a glass of red wine 🙂

Hidden gem: Not exactly hidden-but more people should know about it…Shook & Co is a cool shop located in Supersmith; a shared artists’ space at 125 Dikeman. It features a bunch of local artists, many who work in the shop, and there’s always something new.
