Neighborhood Description

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. For many years, the area was a place of industry and shipping action. Its docks, warehouses and factories gave Gowanus a gritty and somewhat precarious past.

Nowadays, as well as being much safer, it is the site of renovation, with Brooklyn artists taking over and transforming the old spaces into galleries, performance halls, small businesses and homes. This surge of outlets means events are always happening in the neighborhood, and art that may not be seen elsewhere is on rare display.

The influx of young talent and entrepreneurial spirit is seeing new eateries, DIY boutiques and cafes opening up. What was once looked upon as Park Slope’s less attractive neighbor is quickly molding itself into one of Brooklyn’s most hip districts. Should you find a bar amongst the warehouses, you’ll be amongst a lot of young and single Brooklynites, most likely artists, students and other Brooklyn innovators.

This same artistic community has successfully lobbied to clean up the Gowanus Canal, which has been polluted for years due to extensive coal gas usage. Apartment buildings and brownstones can be found hidden in side streets, a nice distance away from the wide avenues that course through South Brooklyn. Most of the homes are low-rises with several apartments in each. Gowanus rents are a great value compared to Carroll Gardens or Park Slope, yet the desirability factor of the area is rising.

The closest subway stations include the F, G and R lines and buses are aplenty. Now being labeled the “Venice of Brooklyn,” Gowanus has a prosperous, and cleaner, future.
