The Beautiful Psychedelic Pollution Floating in the Gowanus Canal

Gowanus Batcave

What fresh hell is this What fresh hell is thisI go to Gowanus often and never heard of the Batcave. So I am thrilled to be able to explore it ... before it gentrifies! Read the full history here.

Known best for the ever-changing political graffiti on its overhang, visible from the 4th Avenue 9 Streets stop on the F and G train, the building is now empty save the furniture and belongings of the people who had lived there.

Currently being cleaned of an excessive build-up of moldy books, mattresses, and plush toys (albeit the graffiti remains relatively untouched), the building was recently bought and is being developed into an art center and bicycle velodrome.
