Red Hook is experiencing a slow but definite revival after Hurricane Sandy, with the majority of enterprises and buildings back in business after being ravaged by the storm. Historic buildings, such as the century-old home of Sunny’s Bar, are once again open to the public. And at least four new restaurants either opened this summer or will do in the fall.

“I’ve had several businesses say it’s been their best August ever and the ferries this summer have been packed,” Elizabeth Demetriou, deputy director of the Southwest Brooklyn Industrial Development Corporation, told the Wall Street Journal. The association worked with local businesses to help them get back on their feet in the wake of the storm.

In August, more than 1,000 architecture students and young professionals took part in a national design competition to create a proposal for a mid-rise, mixed-used complex on the Red Hook waterfront. [WSJ]  – Hiten Samtani
