'Hoodwinked Finalist #8: Red Honk

Name: Red Honk
Submitted By: Anne D. Bernstein
Boundaries: Blocks surrounding Van Brunt/Coffey Street intersection
Description: A charming enclave within Red Hook. Epicenter on Coffey Street where occupants of charming brick and frame houses are terrified of the increase in traffic that will result from Ikea and Fairway. Not to be confused with or associated with the nearby Red Hook Houses, whose inhabitants might actually welcome $6 per hour jobs.
