Although it's home to Fairway and Ikea, Red Hook's remote location and lack of subway lines make it feel like unexplored terrain. Hop onto your bike or take the Water Taxi service from downtown Manhattan (it's $5 during the week, but free on Saturdays and Sundays) and make a beeline for the much-praised Latin-food vendors that set up on the Red Hook ball fields. Sample excellent Salvadoran pupusas and other national delicacies, and watch some serious teams play soccer—kickball in McCarren Park this ain't.
