Get a FREE sneak peek of what’s to come at TEDxGowanus with this exclusive tour of the neighborhood, led by TEDxGowanus speaker and co-curator, Joseph Alexiou.
The tour is focused on NYC industrial history (given Gowanus’s industrial legacy), but will also touch on early Dutch history and the Revolutionary War.
Stops visited will include:
> The Gowanus flushing tunnel
> Green Building
> Carroll Street Bridge
> Third Street Buildings – The Bat Cave, The Coignet Building, and the Old American Can Factory
> And more!
We encourage attendees to bring cameras and phones and snap photos tagged with #gowanusinspired. Some tagged photos will be selected to appear at the TEDxGowanus event on 1/26/14.
Tour lasts approximately 1.5 hours and there will be a post-party to follow at a to-be-named location
