Gowanus is a neighborhood in northwestern Brooklyn, neighboring Park Slope and Carroll Gardens and is a big industrial area.  Residents seeking affordable housing and loft styl studio spaces gravitate towards Gowanus.  The area mostly consists of framed housing in contrast to the brownstones found in the neighboring Park Slope.  Subway and train access is plentiful including the F and G trains on Smith Street and the M and R on Union Street.  Numerous bus lines also service Gowanus.  There are plenty of bars, restaurants and activities to participate in.  Take a walk over the Gowanus Canal, a boat ride with Gowanus Dredgers, visit local art galleries or go see a live concert at one of the many Gowanus venues.
