Red Hook Lane, We Hardly Knew Ye

I've often glanced at the small downtown Brooklyn side street known as Red Hook Lane, that runs diagonally to all the other major thoroughfares in the area, and wondered what it's story was. It seems to serve no useful purpose. And why's it named after Red Hook?

110 Livingston provides a fascinating explanation and tells how the historic road may soon be wiped off the map and disappear from history.
