Live from Red Hook: Documenting the Old

Don't remember Red Hook when the wild dogs were still around? Here's a trailer for a new documentary about the neighborhood called A Hole in a Fence. It looks at gentrification-related changes in the neighborhood and a site next to the rising Ikea store with an interesting back story. It was a home to people living in makeshift housing and to some of the wild dogs, among other things, and it is overrun with wetlands vegetation and painted up with walls full of graffiti. Just this week, the property acquired a for sale sign pitching it to a big retailer.
