BQE Gowanus through the 60's & 50's
Photo Gallery: Brooklyn Queens Expwy.

in the 60's
  The Gowanus section of the BQE, rumbles through the Sunset Park neighborhood that it devastated, not just during it's construction, but through subsequent widening and deterioration. The Gowanus derives it's name from the creek that the highway will fly over, a couple of miles ahead. The orange barriers herald the coming of massive reconstruction, that will surely add to the endless bliss and brightness of life in Sunset Park. The next exit is at 38th Street and Bush Terminal/Industry City.  Shot 1/99.
