Much of Red Hook was without flood insurance, as it was so expensive and hard to get, and so many businesses there—wonderful restaurants, bars, bakeries and production studios—were destroyed, such as Baked, one of the hottest bakeries in Brooklyn. Businesses there have formed a group to try to raise money to bring back what was lost. To find out more or to donate, visit http://restoreredhook.org/
