Gowanus Moving Tips

Gowanus Bay gets its name from a Canarsie Indian named Gouwane (literally "the sleeper"). It was the site of the first settlement by Dutch farmers in Brooklyn in the 1600s. And since then, Gownaus’ history has been quintessentially NYC — i.e., anything but sleepy.

Gowanus was a key site in the American Revolutionary War and a center of catastrophic industrial pollution in the 1900s. A WWII vet housing project and an alleged Mafia dumping ground. And a pioneer of the now all-too-popular communal art and coworking spaces of Brooklyn. And today, it’s one of the city’s most vibrant and upscale little hoods.

Who Lives in Gowanus

Mostly home to artists, hipsters, and young white-collar professionals, Gowanus is also a great place for families. Older multi-family homes, renovated townhouses, and prestigious new condos seamlessly blend with the industrial backdrop. And their 24,000+ residents are as eclectic as the city itself.

What’s the Cost of Living

The average annual household income in Gowanus is upwards of $200,000. The average rent for a one-bedroom is upwards of $3,500/month. The majority rent. And to buy, you’ll need a few million. The overall costs are in tune with its upscale Brooklyn neighbors. So you’ll need at least $1,500/month — before rent —to call Gowanus home with ease.

What is There to do in Gowanus

Gowanus still has the quintessential low-key Brooklyn vibe that once made neighborhoods like Williamsburg world-famous. So art galleries and studios, trendy shops, artisanal bars, restaurants, and cafes, vibrant nightlife — you’ll find all this in Gowanus.

Green spaces aren’t common, but the waterfront is beautiful (and a lot cleaner these days). Gowanus is also home to — among many other great gems — a former Batcave turned Arts Center. And it doesn’t really get more Brooklyn than that, does it?

So take the N or R train to Union Street and explore. Along with quintessential Brooklyn, you’ll find that Gowanus is a great place to rest your head too.
