    The Gowanus Canal (Brooklyn)

    Designed by Major David Douglas in 1849, the Gowanus Canal was created as a passageway for commercial ships going to Upper New York Bay. As a result of the canal, the surrounding area became quite industrial, with new refineries, warehouses, and factories being built. Many of the original buildings are still there today, and while some still serve their original purpose, others have been transformed into artist studios, retail stores, and private residences.
