David Byrne blogs about food.

Posted in General Interest by melissamccart on November 16, 2007

David Byrne has a blog. I’m kind of excited about it.  Anyone living in New York awhile gets used to seeing famous people.  But a sighting of someone like David Byrne is just cool. I’d seen him several times; He is out and about, particularly at shows and, in this case on his bike.

On his blog, you’ll find the Red Hook fields food post among other things, if you’re not all Red Hook’d out from yesterday’s day dedicated to the neighborhood over on  In it, he talks a bit about the neighborhood’s changing character– also in this week’s New York Magazine:

I recently heard about an upcoming forum called “New York: Is it in danger of losing it’s Soul?”. Red Hook, much of it anyway, still has plenty — but as the waterfront gets developed there is always the danger that the lure of big bucks will carve big chunks of that soul away. There are plenty of vacant lots and crumbling warehouses here — there were some suspicious large fires last year. As beautiful as dead tech is, I’m not suggesting that the areas with crumbling concrete and rebar spikes sticking up be kept intact, but that development be allowed to take place on a human scale and at a human pace.
