"Community Planning in a Changing Context": Gowanus Walking Tour This Saturday

This Saturday, April 2, 2016 at 10:00 AM, members of Friends and Residents of Greater Gowanus, a non-for-profit, community based organization will be hosting a very special walking tour of Gowanus. Author and historian Joseph Alexiou will also be on hand.
Don't miss this event. It is bound to be fascinating.

Walk the landscape and the bridges of Brooklyn’s famous coastal harbor inlet with members of FROGG: Friends and Residents of Greater Gowanus. Hear stories of old from tour guide Joseph Alexiou, author of the newly published book, Gowanus: Brooklyn’s Curious Canal. Learn how community planning and grassroots interactions have given shape to a future Gowanus, and experience firsthand the present-day impacts of Mayor de Blasio’s first experimental “high-rise affordable housing” now towering over the low-rise, early industrial district of the Gowanus Canal.
