Sam calls this complex of buildings "Industry City"— I'm not sure if that's their real name. Years ago they housed industrial companies working on raw materials imported through the docks across the street. Today, they're being converted into artist studios. I wouldn't be surprised if this area turns into the next Bushwick, after people realize North Brooklyn is totally played out. It wouldn't be a bad life, I think— you could get a nice apartment on 4th or 5th Avenue near the train and the Mexican restaurants, and rent a huge office down in one of these buildings for your creative work.

Delighted to have found your blog. Thank you for sharing these wonderful images.

wow i love these.

I've been checking you site every once in a while these past months and it wasn't until today that I realized you sometimes have more than one photo on the page. Duh. I liked this shot - it reminds me of a trip we took to New Jersey and New York back when I was just a kid. Then I saw the photo below the first.

So now I am going back to see what else I missed.

The 1010 WINS traffic reports refer to the part of the Gowanus Expressway that runs past these buildings as "Industry City".

There are certain pictures I may want to ask your permission to use for upcoming music projects I have in the works. I up and coming music producer and would love to utilize some of your talent!

A good series. Like the repeating motif of the water towers.

The repetition of the towers and all the lines are fantastic! This looks like it must have been fun finding these shots. Great Job!
