Red Hook is the section of Midtown south of Gate Street and West of 5th Avenue; the western boundary is loosely along Ross and 16th Streets. By the mid-19th century the area had developed into a commercial center, with large numbers of retail and loft buildings. Lying on three north-south Metro lines, promoted residential growth; by the 1960s Red Hook’s industrial base had all but vanished and the predominance of empty commercial space attracted many artists to the area. Large scale conversion of the available space transformed Red Hook into an upscale residential area. Today, Red Hook is one of America’s most fashionable and desirable neighborhoods; known for its celebrity residents. The Red Hook Film Festival celebrates Gotham as a resurgent force in the filmmaking industry as a popular filming location for movies and television shows.
