You see above a picture of the modern day Gowanus Canal, complete with creature, but how did it get this way? Joseph Alexiou can inform you. On Wednesday, March 19th, he’s bringing his enormously popular Brooklyn Brainery lecture to Brooklyn Historical Society. The smells, the pollution, the local mafia lore: learn the truth about this “it” Brooklyn neighborhood. Tickets are $5 and includes a Brooklyn Brewery beer; completely free for BHS Members.
