Quiet Fun nightlife On the rise Young crowd

Gowanus is an area of South Brooklyn in between Boerum Hill, Red Hook, Carroll Gardens and Park Slope.

Gowanus is separated from neighboring Red Hook by the Gowanus Expressway and has the Gowanus Canal running through it. The bay of Gowanus was the first site of the Dutch settlers when they arrived in Brooklyn and its convenient waterfront location meant the area has been economically and historically significant for a long time.

Descriptions of 289 Nevins Street

Situated on the top floor of a three story rowhouse, you also have the finished attic with 7' ceilings and windows all to yourself to store your humongous collection of vinyl, art supplies, books or it could be the biggest shoe closet in Gowanus. Close enough to all the cool places to hang out in the n'hood, yet it is still in a peaceful location. Laura Scariano (Jan 2013)
