Gowanus at Dusk

With Matt Postal

[In-person tour] This sunset walk with Matt Postal explores the recently-rezoned banks of Gowanus, where history and redevelopment go hand in hand. En route, we’ll view the former “bat cave,” a landmark power station being refashioned by Herzog & De Mueron into a center for artists and fabricators, stroll the first of many projected waterfront promenades, and see the remains of industrial complexes where tin cans and Coignet stone were once manufactured. [Rain date: Thursday, June 30]

In-person tours are limited to 25 attendees and are held outdoors.  Walking tours bring individuals into close proximity with each other, we therefore recommend that all tour goers wear masks during the tours, regardless of vaccination status.  Your tour guide and your fellow tour participants will thank you for your cooperation.  Should the tours happen to venture indoors, many places require masks and/or proof of vaccination, so please be prepared to have both with you.

MAS Walking Tours last approximately 2 hours. Meeting location is provided with registration.

Registration is now closed.
