A Moment Back In Time: The Gowanus Basin In The 1890's

Picture 14

If you are a regular reader of this blog, you know that I have a great fondness for old photos of the area. I recently found this very interesting shot from the 1890's. The photo was simply labeled "Gowanus Basin." Interesting, isn't it?

Fascinating. Is that from Manhattan, looking at Brooklyn?

I think it is from the Brooklyn side looking towards New Jersey. What do you think?
