You haven’t experienced anything like Gowanus before. Feel at home in this one-of-a-kind corner of Brooklyn that began as a warehouse district and has become a thriving hub for young professionals. Spend an afternoon at Prospect Park, enjoying the green space, market, and birdwatching. Explore the vibrant colors of New York through art galleries, highlighting the work of local artists from contemporary to expression to screen printing. Jump into the sporty lifestyle with world-class CrossFit facilities, indoor archery, and rock climbing gyms. When it comes time for dinner, there are many fantastic pubs and eateries that make the A-list. Feast on top-notch memelas and more Mexican delights at Claro on their backyard patio. Relax over a cold glass of white wine on a summer day at Bar Tano. To experience old and new Gowanus, game night is a can’t-miss, featuring local and big-name acts in a converted warehouse.
