Red Hook Salt Menace Contained

New, 1 comment

Attention Red Hookers suffering from high blood pressure: it will soon be safe to go outside. The massive salt pile growing at the Red Hook Marine Terminal on Columbia Street?which on windy days is generous enough to preserve the whole neighborhood for long trips at sea?is getting covered up, the Brooklyn Paper reports. The salt will also be watered down to prevent it from blowing into the surrounding neighborhood, and the entire pile is expected to be gone within a few days. Kids, grab your sleds before it's too late! [Brooklyn Paper; previously]
