Gowanus Your Face Off
Gowanus, Brooklyn
The crack between two hipster neighborhoods, home to the now superfunded Canal, the flash point for the new 'Buy Local' and textile revolutions, & filled with brilliant bohemians. . . this is Gowanus & it’ll awesome your face off.

Hands Off The Kids!

Gowanus Power Station graffiti

As previously reported, there’s some new graffiti adorning the south-facing ledge of the Gowanus Power Station’s roof. But it turns out that the picture we snapped a couple of weeks back was just a work in progress. “End Stop & Frisk.” OK! But the “Hand” appended to the end at the time was a bit baffling.

We think that “Hands Off the Kids” is a fine addition to the artist’s statement. The full slogan is reference to the NYPD’s controversial stop and frisk policy, which has been getting heat of late. Read more about the issue here.

Again, we applaud the artist for a stealthy job well done. Getting into the sealed-up Power Station must’ve required hauling ladders over gates, climbing gear, ropes, or some combination thereof. Kudos!
