Real World Will Cement Red Hook as New York’s Scariest Neighborhood

Posted by thelanetrain on July 23, 2008

Yes, yes, we all know that MTV’s stupid drunk juggernaut The Real World is going to be in Brooklyn very soon, but like, stuff keeps happening, you know?  At first, the Real Worlders were going to be living in an exclusive Brooklyn Heights penthouse loft, but according to Gawker, renovations were coming along a little too slow for the producers’ tastes, so they decided to move the cast to a giant pier building in an up-and-coming neighborhood that’s getting gentrified by the minute: Red Hook.  So the lovable neighborhood that was once home to stevedores, hookers, and underground drug trafficking is now home to an Ikea, Fairway, and soon, seven drunk twenty somethings who love to bitch and fight.  Sweet.
