Reading & Signing
SUNDAYS AT SUNNY'S reading, cosponsored by Book Court
253 Conover St. (between Beard and Reed Sts)
Red Hook � Brooklyn, NY
Don't let the sleet scare you away from the formerly desolate streets
of Red Hook! You can bet that Marlon Brando wouldn't have let a little
thing like wind chill keep him from a Sunday afternoon reading series,
had they existed back when he was On The Waterfront. Yes, there's a
three-dollar suggested donation, but you can make it back in free
coffee, Italian pastry, hot cider and this just in: key lime pies!
Hear the word of Job Hopper and then some, from novelist Peter Blauner
and Richard Haw who's penned a cultural history of the best bridge in
Brooklyn - you know the one.
Don't think of it as the fringes of Brooklyn. It's the filet of the
neighborhood. Follow these directions and you won't need to leave a
trail of bread crumbs for the rats:
By bus: �take the B61 toward Red Hook from Atlantic Ave. & Court St.
(or from the A train midtrain exit at Jay Street Borough Hall). Get off
near the end of the line at Van Brunt & Beard streets., walk 1 block
right and 1/2 block left. Or take the B77 bus down 9th Street from Park
Slope (or from the Smith and 9th Street F train stop � exit at the rear
of the train and come down the stairs to street level and the corner
bus stop.) Take the bus in the direction of Van Brunt Street and Red
If you're driving: From Manhattan, take the Brooklyn Bridge and get off
at the Court Street exit � then take a left on Cadman Plaza West, which
will turn into Court St. Go about a mile, past Atlantic Avenue, and
take a right on Sackett Street. Continue straight for five blocks,
across the overpass over the Brooklyn Queens Expressway, and take a
left on Van Brunt Street. Continue down almost to the end of Van Brunt
(you'll see the waterfront up ahead) and take a right on Reed Street.
Go one block and take a right on Conover Street � you'll see a big sign
that says BAR. That's Sunny's.
Dare To Be Heinie!
