Gowanus Taskforce
If you live near the Gowanus Expressway you should be part of determining its future. The highway will soon be rebuilt and the chance to make a difference is now. T.A. is a core member of the Gowanus Community Stakeholder Group, which seeks to ensure an unbiased study of whether to replace the hulking highway with a new elevated or a tunnel. Your help on this mega-project will make a difference for decades to come. Gowanus@transalt.org, 212-629-8080.
