In the Spotlight

Times Does Gowanus

By Lisa M. Collins

What appears to be happening is the nice organic kind of development we like to see, as in, artists and designers and performance spaces and galleries and bars moving in to buildings that were pretty much vacant. Over there now we’ve got Brooklyn Boulders climbing gym, Littlefield performance space, of course Bell House music venue/bar, and a plethora of commercial art, music and design studios.
