• MASNYC – flashback discussion with Gowanus Business Owners

    As the Gowanus neighborhood quickly transforms it’s important to remember that there are people working hard to preserve it’s unique industrial charm. The Municipal Art Society of New York (MASNYC) has been around since 1893 and for the past few years has created podcast highlighting the ongoing issues in the Gowanus area. Back in 2009 they had a conversation with two business owners that work in the area. In these interviews, the owners talk about the problems with rezoning.

    MASNYC also offers tours throughout New York City. See their website for information: MAS.org
    Also, they have their 2011 Gala coming up April 28th. Tickets are available through NYCharities.org
