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

Dan of Two Dan's

Owner of Two Dan's on the Gowanus Canal in Brooklyn, NY, sits on a car in the yard of his shop. Two Dan's auto body and storage stood by the Gowanus Canal in Brooklyn, NY, for years and in 1999 the owners had decided to close and rent the space. The car yard n the canal's banks sat vacant for years and is now a high end restaurant. 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.
