Gowanus Houses Community Meeting

Wednesday, May 15, 6–7 pm
303 Bond Street, Brooklyn

Residents of Gowanus Houses gather on a monthly basis to discuss programming for the newly reopened Gowanus Houses Community Center. Hosted by NYC’s Department of Youth & Community Development (DYCD) and Grand Street Settlement.

These meetings are only open to residents of Gowanus Houses.

The Urban Room at Van Alen Institute is a flexible, accessible, street-level space located at 303 Bond Street in Gowanus, Brooklyn. It’s a place for civic-minded organizations to meet and diverse groups to come together in dialogue, and serves as an information hub for the Gowanus community. Van Alen regularly hosts meetings for many local groups, including Brooklyn Community Board 6, the Gowanus Oversight Task Force, and Gowanus Mutual Aid, as well as a community fridge operated by One Love Community Fridge.

For values-aligned nonprofits and community groups, Van Alen offers this space and meeting tech on a sliding scale, while private and corporate space rentals support our mission to create more equitable cities through inclusive design. To inquire about using our space, fill out this form.
