RED HOOK — Art aficionado Jeffrey Deitch has an eye on Red Hook as a possible location for a new gallery in New York.
Deitch, who resigned from his position as director of the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles in 2013, said he’s considering Red Hook for a huge art space but hasn’t made any final decisions yet, according to New York Magazine.
Deitch also has a gallery in SoHo and is looking at other areas of the city, such as the pier at Fourteenth Street on the Hudson.
“Most of them have complications. I am looking at Red Hook, but there are a lot of issues, like can we get a water taxi going? Who could help subsidize that?” Deitch told the magazine.
