Gowanus CDC Director Tom Chardavoyne Passes Away

Some sad news to report. Thomas Chardavoyne, the Executive Director of the Gowanus Canal Community Development Corp., has passed away. The news comes via an email from Community Board Six District Manager Craig Hammerman. Mr. Chardavoyne was deeply involved in efforts to create a strategic plan for the Gowanus community and to ensure that planning, rezoning and development went hand in hand. He was also involved in a large number of civic and neighborhood causes. On a personal level, we will say that we always found him to be very friendly, very warm and very caring about the community. We are very saddened by the news. There will be a wake for Mr. Chardavoyne on Sunday at Scotto's Funeral Home at 106 1st Place (off Court Street) on Sunday from 7-9pm and Monday from 2-5pm and 7-9pm. The funeral mass is on Tuesday, April 3rd at 10:15am at St. Boniface R.C. Church, 109 Willoughby Street.
