GOWANUS after Jonas: Superfund Beauty

Gowanus

Everytime I walk to the Gowanus Canal, I see something unique. It is amazing to me that this Superfund site can have such beauty in its dusgusting-ness.

Last night's visit after Winter Storm Jonas was no different. Walking across the Union Street bridge, the light cast across a snow covered pylon almost looked like a flower.

And when I found the ice flows in the Third Street basin behind Whole Foods, it made the night even more worthwhile.

If you would like to see more of my (Mark D Phillips) collection from the Gowanus Canal, visit any of these locations:
