Meanwhile, on the Very Special Gowanus Canal

There are now bird houses. We do not know if the Toll Brothers are involved. "Along both sides of Degraw Street is a small group of canary yellow of birdhouses -- an installation called the Canal Nest Colony. The birdhouses, or 'nests' are crafted from recycled materials and hope to attract the Eastern Bluebird and and Purple Martin Additionally, two trees were planted along a drainage area to filter pollutants. We really like it for a number of reasons, but mostly because it highlights the unique beauty of the canal." Yes, we love it for its unique beauty too. [Sail Brookyn]
