This year TechCrunch’s Disrupt NY , “a three-day, single-track conference and startup competition to immerse you in the debate about what’s changing in technology right now, what’s causing it and what we need to do about it to survive and thrive in real time” will take place at the Brooklyn Cruise Terminal in Red Hook. The dates are May 9th-11th and it’s going to be big. We love what they had to say about our beloved neighborhood. Read below.
The Red Hook neighborhood around the Port Authority Cruise terminal, where we are holding Disrupt, is home to artisanal breweries, chocolate makers, unique eateries, art galleries, bike shops, and more. Also close by is Red Hook public housing, home to 10,000 residents who face incredible challenges to make their community a better place. Everywhere you look in Red Hook, you see evidence of the resilience and innovation that’s a key ingredient to the success of any startup, from Fort Defiance, where the colonial rebels once readied to square off with the Red Coats, to the WWII-era shipyard cranes preserved in waterside park, to the rapid re-building following Hurricane Sandy. And then there are the gob-smacking views of the statue of Liberty and Manhattan’s east side.
Red Hook has a lot to offer, and at Disrupt our attendees are going to experience Red Hook front and center.
