Gowanus

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.
