red hook ballfields

are they still going strong?

are there any old standards (not Alma, 360, etc.) that remind you of the longshoremen days in RH?

      We were scared off by the weather reports that it would rain---were they running at full capacity or have some of the vendors left?

        Everything was up and running at full speed.

      1. Defonte's is very good. There's also a couple of good bars around, too.

          I think that Defonte's is not open on Sunday, so only if you go to the ballfields on Saturday will it work for you.

        2. Used to get sandwiches at Defonte's, when I worked on the docks, 40+ years ago.
