The Red Hook Archives

A Visual History of Red Hook
July 1999

About the exhibition

Kentler International Drawing Space has established The Red Hook Archives, a file consisting of photographs, maps, and images that document the people and history of Red Hook.  Based on The Brooklyn Collection at Brooklyn Public Library and The Brooklyn Historical Society, this file is open to the public by appointment as a valuable resource for the community’s past, present and future.
Please bring in your photographs and materials to be scanned by Kentler gallery. The original photographs will be archived or returned to you, the scanned print will then be part of the Red Hook Archives.  This is a way to share your history in Red Hook with others and to connect old friends with new.  The Kentler may make selections from the materials submitted, for inclusion in this file.
