Husband and I took a late summer afternoon stroll in the Gowanus on Wednesday evening. We watched as commuters buzzed to and fro. We noticed some new developments underway and houses mid-renovation. Here is a picture of the ‘Home of Eagle Clothes’ sign. It’s currently being torn down, after being there for 20 years.
Flowers adorn a window sill along 3rd avenue in Gowanus.
A baby kitten plays with her mother in a bodega in Gowanus.
She was so cute, only 4 weeks old.
Quite a few homes under renovation in the area.
There is something majestic about Gowanus. Behind the industrial grit lies a community of people who care about the well-being of our neighborhood, our neighbors, our parks and our schools. We want the community to thrive and we realize potential where others may not. Time will only tell what becomes of Gowanus, but as I walk through her streets I notice people prudently doting on their homes and their businesses.
