RED HOOK - A beach, hotel and more could soon dot Red Hook?s waterfront if New York Water Taxi?s plan gains momentum.

New York Water Taxi President Tom Fox?s business operates out of Erie Basin. Fox?s $350 million plan calls for revitalizing the nearby 17-acre Atlantic Basin site. A marina, restaurant and high school are also included. Fox expects the project to create nearly 800 full-time jobs and connect the waterfront to the community.

Local historians support the project, saying it could bring jobs back to an area that once thrived. The Economic Development Corporation takes up the matter in January.
