Cole & Henry St at 8:45PM? I don't think that is a very good idea, it's a shame but anyone walking at that time in that area? Not a good idea!!! People out there feel they can just take what they want and dare you to fight back back..In broad day light I think twice about us walking down that end and going over the 142 bridge is something else to think about. It is lonely down that end of Red Hook so people become targets. And the phones always seem to be out and showing..so be extra careful of where you are. They are thinking they are safe in the most isolated places...Shame Shame Shame on these muggers...
