    The city is planning to dish out $2.3 million on improvements to a Red Hook park that has seen better days.

    The Parks Department has reportedly committed to redesign Coffey Park on the Verona Street, across from the Red Hook Houses. The revamped green space, which was damaged during Hurricane Sandy along with many other spots in the neighborhood, comes as real estate insiders increasingly point to the area as one of the next neighborhoods in Brooklyn where property values are poised to skyrocket.

    From the April issue: For years, real estate insiders have been pointing to Red Hook as the next hot Brooklyn neighborhood, predicting an explosion in sale prices and activity in the long-industrial neighborhood.

    But due to the real estate downturn and other factors, that never quite materialized. And in October, when Hurricane Sandy dealt a harsh blow to the neighborhood, many real estate pros counted Red Hook down for the count. [more]

    Brooklyn Nets officials are giving Red Hook a once over, as they scout locations for a new practice facility, Crain’s reported. For over a year the team has been hunting for a Brooklyn site, but at least through the next season, practice will continue at the Nets Center in East Rutherford, N.J, which they lease through that time frame.

    The Nets have said they hope to have a practice facility in the borough for the start of the 2013-2014 season. Their complex in New Jersey has two basketball courts, a treatment center, a workout facility, a locker room, a video theater and 32,000 square feet of offices. [more]
