Last week, the EPA added Brooklyn, New York’s long-polluted Gowanus Canal to the national Superfund site list. The decision was made in response to a request from the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation–but against the wishes of NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg. As with all things in my native home, whether Superfunding the Gowanus will help make things better or worse for Gotham residents depends on whom you ask. Join me for an examination of the issue on the Kenneth Cole Awearness Blog: Superfund Vs. Environmental Justice in Brownstone Brooklyn.
