While the art in the streets of gray industrial neighborhoods might seem scarce, it’s become all the rage in the eyes of Brooklyn’s largest arts community. In an area filled with signs of old industrial might, creative industries and artists are everywhere. You’ll stop by alternative artist-run galleries and libraries and peek into art studios as you walk along this most happening of Superfund sites. The stock of architecture is stunning, especially when paired with a wide range of community murals and street art. Art is in the engineering and architecture, but it's the street art that accentuates the beauty of its contours. So if you're starved for contemporary culture and industrial eye-candy, head down to Gowanus. You're guaranteed to meet interesting characters, and the diversity and quality of art here will blow your mind. Tours are always evolving, and never scripted.
Note: The exact meeting location will be provided upon confirmation of booking.
