Open House Weekend returns to Gowanus

On October 21-23, 2022, the 20th Annual Open House NY Weekend gives access to places not open to the public including the Gowanus Canal. Each day from 1pm to 6pm, the Gowanus Dredgers will offer exploratory canoe voyages to view post-industrial buildings and abandoned shorelines, now colonized by wildlife and new developments.
