Gowanus Guide

What's it like to live in Gowanus?

Gowanus is a great neighborhood for home buyers who enjoy both indoor and outdoor activities. Finding dynamic places is easy in this part of New York. Although the nightlife is limited, there are usually crowds of people around. 2nd Avenue is among the most lively streets in this part of New York. Greenery is not very prominent in this area; however, a large number of locations within the neighborhood have reasonably good access to green spaces, including Park, since there are a few of them close by for residents to explore.

What kinds of homes are available in Gowanus?

Small apartment buildings are the most common housing type, representing about 40% of dwellings in Gowanus, and the rest of the properties are mainly large apartment buildings and duplexes. This part of the city is primarily composed of one bedroom and two bedroom homes. About 70% of the dwellings in the neighborhood are occupied by renters and 30% are occupied by owners. The homes in this area are very old, since most of its dwellings were built before the 1960s, while the majority of the remaining buildings were constructed in the 2000s.

What are the schools, restaurants and shopping like in Gowanus?

It is especially convenient to access both a general and a specialty grocery store by walking from most properties for sale in this part of the city. Likewise, with approximately 20 restaurants and a few coffee shops, Gowanus is a good area in which to go out to eat. A reasonable variety of clothing stores is also situated within a rather short walking distance. When it comes to education, residents will welcome that wherever their home is located in this neighborhood, both primary and secondary schools are nearby. Residents are served by public and private elementary schools.

What are the best ways to get around in Gowanus?

Gowanus presents homeowners with several alternative methods of transportation. This neighborhood has a great public transit infrastructure as a consequence of 2 rapid transit stations (Smith - 9 Sts Station and 4 Av Station) with access to the F | Queens Blvd Express/ 6 Av Local Line, D | 6 Avenue Express and G | Brooklyn-Queens Crosstown Line, and a few nearby bus lines. It is also especially convenient for pedestrians to get around in Gowanus; meeting day-to-day needs is straightforward by walking, and a good number of businesses of different types can be found as well.
