This is not a joke. Well, the "Venice Springs Industrial Park" and cupid might be jokes, but it's an ad for actual space being rented on the Gowanus. It's been posted up on Craigslist, and the company's also posted ads for space in a "hip Gowanus locale." The pitch says, in part, "Perfect for working artists, sculptors, performance venues, unique dining concepts, bakeries, galleries, scrap processing, canal boating tour operators, shipping, light manufacturing, photography studios and alternative offices." Canal boating tour operators?
