We have watched the steel framework of the Red Hook Ikea rising along Beard Street in Red Hook, but when we went poking around back, we found that a corner of the site has started to get the trademark Ikea blue exterior walls. Working is going at a furious pace on the massive waterfront site, so it shouldn't be long before Red Hook's big new landmark is all blue. Us, we can't wait for the yellow trim and signage.

This is the view across the old Revere Sugar Factory site. That gap is where the Revere Dome used to be.
