Brooklyn's Bravest

There are many things one would expect to find in the infamously toxic Gowanus Canal. Oil slicks? Sure. Dead bodies? Likely. Raw Sewage? Most definitely. Sea loving creatures? Yeah, right. And I bet you've got a bridge you'd like to sell me...


So, when I read on Curbed via Gowanus Lounge yesterday that a whale (yes, a real fucking whale!) had found its way into the Gowanus Canal, I thought it was a belated April Fools joke. But no, it's true!



See West 9th Street on the map where it meets the BQE? My apartment's a few blocks or so north of there and the fiesty baby Baleen whale currently hanging in "Gowanus Bay." I plan on stalking the little guy should he still be around this weekend, although considering the mass pollution of the water, part of me hopes he realizes his mistake and hauls ass outta there.

UPDATE: Sadly, our Sludgie The Whale has passed into that great big ocean in the sky. We're going to miss the thought of the little guy.
