Gowanus



Gowanus

Named for the canal that slices through the neighborhood, Gowanus
retains an industrial feel from its long history as a shipping and
manufacturing center. As the industry left and new encouragement for
development came from the city, artists began to arrive, attracted by
the historic brick buildings and charming narrow drawbridges along the
canal.

Although this small neighborhood is quiet for the most part, Third
Avenue has developed a handful of trendy restaurants, and residents
have only to walk for a few minutes to enjoy the shopping and dining
scenes in neighboring Park Slope, Carroll Gardens, and Cobble Hill.
Completion of environmental cleanup is on the horizon, as are major
parks projects that will turn the canal into a recreational amenity and
improve links to surrounding areas.
