Gowanus Canal: Brooklyn's Superfund Site - South Brooklyn Internet Inc.

Gowanus Beauty

The old addage that snow can make anything look beautiful even works for the Gowanus Canal in Brooklyn, NY. The large brick building across the canal is the former Brooklyn Rapid Transit Power Station, now a brownfield site with residential redevelopment potential. Coal was delivered via the now filled-in First Street Basin directly across from First Street, one of several former canal basins. A graveyard from the Battle of Brooklyn and mill are believed to be located beneath here.
