Chopper Fury

If you live in Red Hook and think the world is out to get you, well, there might be some evidence for that view. On top of truck traffic and cruise ship fumes, there's now increased chopper traffic after the city diverted helicopters following the 2009 shutdown of Manhattan's west side heliport. After Brooklyn Heights residents got the city to institute a no-fly zone, officials had two choices: fly the choppers over Red Hook or over the uninhabited Governors Island. They chose Red Hook.
