Gowanus Walking Tour


Saturday, July 30, 2022

10:00 AM to 12:00 PM

Join Daniel Pecoraro, NYC tour guide, history educator, and longtime Interference Archive volunteer, for a walking tour of Gowanus. How did a natural creek become a canal; how did it become one of the most polluted sites in New York City; and how is it, in spite of the pollution, becoming one of the hottest neighborhoods in which to reside? And what all comes next? This tour will attempt to answer these questions, with a focus on the past, present, and future of Gowanus as told through its pedestrian bridges (and the Culver Viaduct), going south to north.

This event is made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature.
