Ramberg Marine Sails Out of Red Hook

And New York loses most industry.

Gowanus Lounge informs us that Red Hook has lost one its few remaining businesses that has anything to do with shipping, which was once the nabe's life blood. Ramberg Marine on Dwight Street has packed up and is moving to New Jersey. It has been in Red Hook for 82 years. The business would have been directly across from the new IKEA. Quite frankly, it's amazing they held out this long.
