Dusk on the Gowanus Canal

DSC_5562 DSC_5563 DSC_5568

One of these years, as a result of the EPA cleanup and gentrification, the Gowanus Canal area will, for me, lose much of its charm. In the background of the chain link fence image, is the F Train line, Smith St. & 9th Ave. station, which is one of the few elevated stations still working.

  1. Do you mean clean it up then fence it off?

  2. With new construction (condos?) going up on the west side of the canal and Whole Foods on the east, public access will probably be limited. Now, most of the adjacent land is fenced-off, but not inpenetrable. Not sure if there is a Master Use Plan for the area. I have just been following the transition over the past 7 years.
