Saturday Ride, Part 2: Red Hook to Park Slope

POST #    1366

After lunch in DUMBO, Halo and I forged on. The weather was no longer nice. The partly cloudy skies were replaced by mostly cloudy/cloudy skies. The sun was totally gone. No warmth for us. From DUMBO, we rode to Red Hook and explored the area. It was a very interesting exploration. We really had no idea where exactly we were, but we kept close to the waterside, stopping every so often when we saw anything worth a look.

One huge highlight of the whole day was stumbling upon the location of Steve's Authentic Key Lime Pies. I actually think we spied Steve and his dogs. Also in Red Hook, we were yelled at by some bikers (as in the moto kind) as I took the fourth picture. It was something like, "Hey! Take that shit somewhere else!!" It should be noted that the biker was quite burly. We yelled back, "What?" as the guy explained to his friend that we were writing on the wall. After we explained that we were taking pictures, he was all "oh, okay." The coolest building we saw was the Port Authority Grain Terminal, picture number seven. So big, so empty looking, so daunting.

After putzing around Red Hook, we went to Park Slope ever so briefly and parted ways. After Halo took the subway home, I was going to take the G, but ended up biking home. I got home around 4:20, five hours after starting from Wiliamsburg.
