The King of Red Hook and the director of Pioneer Works, Mr. Yellin has transformed a gargantuan factory building, built in 1866, into a vital art center, with studios, exhibitions and more. Superstorm Sandy ravaged the area (and his building), but he has been seemingly indefatigable in getting things up and running again.
