American Stevedoring isn't going anywhere. That's the upshot (or one of the upshots) of a revised plan by the city's Economic Development Corporation for the Red Hook Waterfront first announced in early November and presented in detail at Monday night's Community Board 6 meeting. The new plan, which is clearly more industry-friendly than an earlier version that envisioned art galleries and restaurants, would also install Phoenix Beverages in Pier 11 and another nearby building. Brooklyn Brewery is still left out in the cold. The current plan reflects not only economic realities but political ones as well.
