Brooklyn with Beatrice

Red Hook, (Roode Hoek) named by the Dutch for the red clay of the ground and the point, or "hoek" that extends into the Atlantic, became a point/ port of entry into Brooklyn for ships. Here's a defunct trolly sitting between the Fairway and Lady Liberty. Photo by, Karie Henderson © 2011.

Beatrice, my trusty steed, and I have been getting around much of Brooklyn and into Manhattan. The other day we meant to head back to a site I photographed after Irene, and found ourselves half way up Manhattan. She's older than I, and still rides with ease. Photo by, Karie Henderson © 2011.
