We checked on Ikea Red Hook over the weekend and found some sort of pre-opening event that was drawing a lot of cars and shoppers to the store. There was a steady stream of cars and cabs, not to mention the now-running Ikea shuttle. Some were decorated by Ikea and others were clearly generic buses rented from other place. Beard Street was still relatively quiet, but not for much longer.
