Red Hook Lobster Pound

A child of the Great Recession, the Red Hook Lobster Pound belies the notion that only bad things come from misaligned incentives. In 2008, the credit markets froze, trillions of dollars in wealth were wiped out, and Ralph Gorham and Susan Povich were left with a building in Red Hook that they couldn’t develop. Over a meal of lobster at their kitchen table, they decided to go into the business themselves. City diners reacted with a rather rational exuberance, and they’ve since weathered Superstorm Sandy and are still going strong. (284 Van Brunt St., Brooklyn 718-858-7650.)

Signed fine art Giclee prints on museum-quality, one-quarter-cotton 280 gsm paper with archival inks are available in two sizes:

5 x 7 for $55
9 x 12 for $95

Editions are strictly limited to 365 copies, and each annotated print is a beautiful reminder that our days are numbered.

Life is Short-Art is Long

But There's a Quick Way

While it can take four weeks or more to make, sign, and ship a print, if you need something right away, I will email you a one-sheet about the series. You can print it at home, roll it up, and put a ribbon on it!
