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

Red Metal Shed

A warehouse on a dock in the Gowanus Canal in Brooklyn, NY, sits abandoned in the late 1990s. By 2015, the area has become one of the hottest gentrification areas in New York City. The canal's designation as a Superfund site still keeps the water itself off-limits.
