Rediscover Brooklyn With Your Dog: Red Hook

Walking your dog doesn’t have to be a chore when Brooklyn has so many great neighborhoods to explore. Over the weekend we went on a Red Hook walkabout with some delicious and dog-friendly stops along the way. We started in Cobble Hill, walking down Court Street, on to Summit Street to cross the BQE pedestrian overpass and meandered through Carroll Gardens. Once on the other side, make sure to visit the community gardens on the Columbia Waterfront starting with the Summit Street Garden on Columbia Street and two others as you approach Van Brunt.

Our first stop was Red Hook Lobster Pound on Van Brunt for scrumptious lobster rolls, which we devoured on sidewalk benches. Up next was Valentino Pier on Coffey Street where we enjoyed the summer breeze as we watched kayakers. I’ve heard of people who let their dogs swim in these water but I’m rather grossed out by the thought.

For dessert we went to Steve’s Key Lime Pie on Van Dyke Street before making a final stop at the Mercado, a great dog-friendly outdoor spot where you can get the same food you’ll find at the ball fields from pupusas to huaraches as well as cupcakes. Red Hook is full of interesting nooks to explore. Visit TONY’s Essential Red Hook to create your own doggie walking tour.
