Photographer Paul Frangipane

Paul Frangipane is a photojournalist based in Brooklyn. He describes his approach as "through an intimate documentary lens, striving to capture the beauty in natural moments and providing creative perspectives on common events."

Paul Frangipane  - @PaulFrangipane - posted this picture of the grain terminal in Red Hook in 2018, and PortSide NewYork asked if we could add it to Red Hook Waterstories.   He graciously agreed, and sent along a crane photograph as well.

Grain Terminal - "Easily seen driving by on the Gowanus Expressway, the abandoned Red Hook Grain Terminal is even more magnificent up close from Red Hook Park. The park's views boast up-close soft sunset colors against the terminal's aging texture as seen through this natural tree branch frame."

Crane - "Whether day or night, the many cranes on the Red Hook waterfront stand as a testament to the neighborhood's industrial history. Shot with a long exposure, the after-sunset clouds blur over this majestic piece of machinery that reaches into the sky."
