• Gowanus Inch By Inch

    Gowanus Inch By Inch is an ongoing photo project capturing as much of the Gowanus area as it is right now.

    This image is of the New York and Long Island Coignet Stone Company Building at 3rd Ave. and 3rd St. This image also focuses on the unique sky seen from the Gowanus area.

     
  • Gowanus Inch By Inch: T.E. Conklin Brass and Copper Company

    On Nevins Street where Sackett Streets runs into the Gowanus Canal sits the T.E. Conklin Brass and Copper Warehouse. The T.E. Conklin Brass and Copper Company was founded in Manhattan in 1860 and used this Gowanus, South Brooklyn Warehouse from 1959 to 1981. The warehouse is now used by various companies including Admiral Metals. Friends of GYFO allowed us  inside to photograph the space for the ongoing series Gowanus Inch By Inch.

    Gowanus Inch By Inch is meant to archive the Gowanus area at this moment in time.

     

     
  • Graffiti: Follow the instructions

    Sometimes graffiti will ask you to do something and you don’t even know why.

    This wall tell us to:
    1) Find A Pen And A Piece Of Paper
    2) Write Down A Prayer
    3) Roll Up The Paper
    4) Stick The Roll In The Wall

    We are hoping our prayer of truck loads of candy comes true, but we are not sure about the deity powers of the wall.

     

     
  • Gowanus Inch by Inch

    Over the past few years Gowanus has changed dramatically. Buildings have come and gone. Industrial buildings and homes have been erased. Things have changed. In our ongoing series titled Gowanus Inch by Inch we try and capture the neighborhood as it is in this moment in time.

    Today we present a view of a parking lot off of Nevins Street. This parking lot is used by many industrial businesses from truck repair to a demolition/excavation groups. It is a classic image of properties along the Gowanus Canal.
