THE CANAL THAT
THE CREEK THAT
SAVED OUR NATION
Gowanus: National Registry of Historic Places, Eligible Since 2006.
Gowanus: filled with amazing history.
The Listing to National and State Registries, sponsored by FROGG,
will bring economic redevelopment tax incentives to the district
for owners who voluntarily choose to participate in renovation and
redevelopment of properties.
Support of the Historic Registry Listing is to
support the future of Gowanus.
Please contact Mayor Bill de Blasio and tell him to let the State Review Board vote on the Gowanus Canal Historic District.
Tell him to: Please permit the NYS Review Board to vote on the Gowanus Canal Historic District. Listing the area on the National Register of Historic Places will only encourage economic development and investment in the neighborhood. This is a community-driven plan which is business and development friendly, and lifts the community up by acknowledging the Canal’s importance in the development of our city. There are no
new regulations or requirements which will be triggered by this designation, only the possibility of incentives to development.
