"Where Latin food goes to die"

Bay Street is one of the best streets in Red Hook - mostly because of the vendors that hang around the Red Hook Ball Fields. You can get some of the best Latin food in Brooklyn from these trucks, including - but not limited to - empanadas, grilled corn (with chili, lime and cheese), tamales and the infamous pupusas.

Besides the Red Hook Ball Fields - where you can get your soccer game on - the Red Hook swimming pool also sits right on Bay Street.

Bay Street never really gets very residential, and the eastern most block is pretty industrial and deserted-seeming. The recreational area of this street is a great place to be during the day, but I don't know that I would want to hang around here at night, seeing as how not many other people stick around and it stops being as safe.

Like the rest of the neighborhood, Bay Street offers up an awesome vibe, but if you don't have a car down here your transportation options remain pretty limited. For some reason, the G train is still the only train that comes down to Red Hook - no matter how up-and-coming the neighborhood has proven to be in recent years.
