Saturday, April 2, 10 AM Gowanus: Community Planning
in a Changing Context
Walk the landscape and the bridges of Brooklyn’s famous coastal harbor inlet with members of FROGG: Friends and Residents of Greater Gowanus. Hear stories of old from tour guide Joseph Alexiou, author of the newly published book, Gowanus: Brooklyn’s Curious Canal. Learn how community planning and grassroots interactions have given shape to a future Gowanus, and experience firsthand the present-day impacts of Mayor de Blasio’s first experimental “high-rise affordable housing” now towering over the low-rise, early industrial district of the Gowanus Canal.
