Morning View - Gowanus Building

The derelict Gowanus Building, an old power station in Brooklyn, has been on sale for $27M forever. It gained the above editorial last September during the Wall Street bailout, which hasn't helped it sell, oddly enough. The building sits on the Gowanus Canal, one of the nation's most polluted waterways. The EPA has proposed adding the Gowanus to its Superfund cleanup priority list, a move opposed by Mayor Bloomberg because that would interfere with two proposed 1200-unit apartment towers.
