We knew there was something about the Gowanus that drew us in. Something we'd seen, somewhere before. Time Out New York was inspired by a remark at the Gowanus Whole Foods groundbreaking calling Gowanus the "Venice of Brooklyn" to make the match seen above showing how Venice's Ponte dei Sospiri and Brooklyn's Smith-9th Station are two sides of the same page. Lavender Lake. La Serenissima. Same thing. Does this make Coney Island the South Brooklyn Adriatic Coast?
