Gowanus Industrial Arts Complex: Neighborhood Beat BoCoCa/Gowanus

When hurricane Sandy hit, it sent nearly six feet of polluted canal and salt water seeping in the Gowanus Industrial Arts Complex, which houses several businesses. We stopped by Build It Green! NYC and The New York Art Foundry businesses to see how they are continuing to recover and thrive, after the storm. For more information on Build It Green!

Artem Mirolevitch: Caught In The Act

His work is somewhat mythological, maybe not surprising for someone who really focused on art after a traumatic early incident in his life.
