Photo by myself at Conover and Coffey Streets, in Red Hook, Brooklyn.
Just outside a chocolate factory and a bar are two gorgeous murals, depicting both indulgences, wine and chocolate.
Unfortunately, the establishments were closed when we were there, this Saturday. Mark and I heard from friends that the owner of the chocolate factory opened a bar next door for impromptu celebrations.
Red Hook is a quirky, gritty, arty neighborhood along the Brooklyn waterfront, near Carroll Gardens. There are many cobblestone streets, local bars and tiny stores. A Fairway supermarket and an Ikea branch are also located here.
Unfortunately, it's not an easy neighborhood to visit. Since there are no direct subways, you must drive, take a bus or the Ikea shuttle.
A mural depicting a couple enjoying chocolate is just steps away on this seemingly desolate street.
