Re(Build) Red Hook's Home/Made
This is what we looked like on October 28, 2012. We have been working steadfastly to rebuild ever since.
As many of you know, Hurricane Sandy devastated the community of Red Hook, Brooklyn. She sent 15-foot waves crashing onto our shores and water flowing through the streets. By our restaurant, the flood covered the hood of our Landrover. In the middle of the storm we went out to rescue chickens that were stranded in their coop in the lot nextdoor. To do that, we were wading through chest-deep water. (Here's a good NYTimes story about it.)
Thank you all who have stuck by our side. We can't do this without you. We're working every day to bring Red Hook a better home/made.
Looking forward to a full reopening some time in March. Stay tuned for the latest news on Twitter @homemadebklyn.

We will rebuild, together, stronger than ever!
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!!! Love, Leisah & Monica
