|Brooklyn Crab, almost finished|
Red Hook is certainly an up-and-coming area, but it's easy to see why this eatery will want to drive people over. They've got two stories to fill and it's a bit of a trek from the nearest station, so if the views of New York Harbor aren't enough, maybe a free ride will be. Details aren't 100% clear at this point, but the tram will pick people up at the Carroll Street subway station and run between 6:00 PM and 10:00 PM Sunday through Thursday and 6:00-11:00 PM on Fridays and Saturdays. Manhattanites can also reach the crab shack by jumping on the Ikea Water Taxi and walking a few blocks once they disembark.
If that's not enough to lure you over - how about some mini golf? 18 holes of putt-putt will follow soon after the joint's opening. Suh-weet. Stay tuned to their Twitter feed for updates (24 Reed Street).
