At first glance, our assigned block seemed lifeless. Two blank brick walls took up either side of the street. We looked closer, and found signs of life hidden in the details.
Tired of no one listening to you opine about the changes going on in the neighborhood? Here’s a chance to be heard.
This weekend, my husband and I met filmmakers Jamie Courville and Chris Reynolds hanging out on the Carroll St. Bridge. We got to talking and they told us about their documentary Gowanus Current,which is following the changes taking place in the neighborhood.
They are incorporating audio testimonials in the film and are eager for folks to call their hotline and leave their thoughts on Gowanus – anonymously, or not.
Check out their Facebook page for news from the neighborhood and updates on their film.
Here’s a reminder of how fast things are changing: Two Before/After shots they have collected for their project. By my recollection these were taken just a couple of months apart.
