Gowanus

18 May

I’ve been obsessed with Gowanus for some time. Lucky for me, my SO, Michael, is also obsessed with Gowanus. He just had an article published in the Urban Review, about the impending transition from industrial to residential, and is a prelude to his much larger research project on transitioning/gentrifying industrial neighborhoods and the implications of pushing industry to the outskirts of cities (p.3). Another very interesting and well written article in the UR is a brief history of the Grand Concourse in the Bronx, tracking its move from country road to architectural playland (Victorian to Art Deco and Art Moderne), its post war decline and optimistic future (p.1).
