Red Hook Economic Development (RHED) was formed in 2009 by a concerned group of business owners and neighbors from the Red Hook section ofBrooklyn, New York in order to vitalize a mixed-use community in transition. Red Hook’s growing diversity of businesses serve residents, attract investment, supply jobs, and create local wealth.
Local businesses and nonprofits not only provide goods, services, and entertainment, but also contribute to the neighborhood’s growing vibrancy and quality of life. RHED recognizes that achieving sustainable community economic development requires businesses and neighbors working together to establish and maintain a healthy and vibrant live/work environment. As such RHED provides online resources for and about Red Hook, as well as opportunities for local stakeholders to engage in activities that enhance neighborhood character and quality of life.
