Weeks after he voiced his support for the Gowanus rezoning, Borough President Eric Adams formalized his approval – with conditions. The beep’s report to the City Planning Commission included 38 recommendations to the Gowanus Neighborhood Project.

These recommendations lay out a path for achieving that.”
