The Gowanus Canal, as we all know, is a mess of oil slicks, PCBs, doody and dolphin carcasses. But just how bad is it? A new documentary (h/t Gowanus Your Face Off), simply titled Gowanus,¬†gets down there and explores that question, while also talking to people who seem to be fans of it. Spoiler alert: according to a quote in the trailer, “We’ve seen things in the water in Gowanus that we’ve never seen anywhere else.”
