Ambiguous Borders: Exploring the Definitions of Community in Red Hook, Brooklyn

Geis, Shannon

This audio walking tour explores the unique and varied history of the neighborhood of Red Hook, Brooklyn. Through oral history interviews with residents of the neighborhood, we see how diverse and dynamic the neighborhood can be, as well as how divided. Completed a year and a half after Hurricane Sandy, many of the narrators discuss their experiences with the storm and how it has affected their homes and community.
