Gowanus – What the Hell is Going On?

Janes Walk

Led By Brad Vogel AND Jack Riccobono, Voice of Gowanus

What the hell is going on in Gowanus, Brooklyn? A superfund cleanup. A massive proposed rezoning. Fights over sewage overflow tanks. And zany cultural happenings. Join Gowanusian Brad Vogel and co-host Jack Riccobono, members of the grassroots group Voice of Gowanus, as they dive into the “civic hot mess” on the Gowanus Canal. Learn about toxins, flooding, sewage, and displacement issues – with one host Zooming in from the street to illustrate.


This walk will be accessible for attendees via Zoom. One of the hosts will be Zooming in live from out in the neighborhood, walking around to help explain and show things that are being discussed.
