Flushing Out The Canal

Article in the Times today detailing the flushing tunnel under Degraw Street, and the work being done to it.  Good article, except it kept going on about the canal “stench” – which is just factually incorrect and makes me wonder if he’s walked around here much.  I mean, hey, a mountain spring it is not, and after heavy rain, it’s not pretty.  I am, however, tired of the comments like “oh, you live in Gowanus, how do you deal with the smell!?”  Years ago, sure.  It was known as the Lavender Lake.  But in 2011?  Just not true.  Comment #1 was spot on.
