Ahead of tonight’s public meeting on the rezoning of Gowanus, a coalition of preservation advocates has launched a new website documenting the area’s architectural heritage they see as at risk.
The site profiles 15 buildings that the organization, the Gowanus Landmarking Coalition, is hoping can be protected during the rezoning process. Groups involved include the Park Slope Civic Council, Old Stone House, Historic Districts Council and FROGG (AKA Friends of Greater Gowanus).
You can check out the website and read up on the history of the buildings here.
