Gowanus Nursery Finds a New Home...in Red Hook

First, the good news: The Brooklyn Record reports that the Gowanus Nursery, the cool little spot for backyard and windowbox greenery that was located on Third Street in Carroll Gardens/Gowanus has a new home. The bad news: It's basically in Red Hook. (No, it's not "bad news," per se, as we love Red Hook too. We just especially loved their former location. Something about a nursery in Gowanus spoke to the human drive to overcome any circumstance that comes your way.) Regardless, the nursery, which lost its home because of future real estate development in the hood, will reemerge on March 31 at 45 Summit Street, which is between Columbia and Van Brunt Streets near the entrance to the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel. It's on the street whose direction was changed when some of the traffic patterns were changed because of the endless construction on Columbia Street.
