Place Matters Profile



Nominations

Ned Kaufman

Huge, early housing project (1930s). Originally many residents were Jewish, later mostly African American and Latino. A strongly held view in the neighborhood is that a history of Red Hook without significant mention of the Red Hook Houses is a biased picture.
