In Brooklyn, a Dream Home Beside the Gowanus Canal

From the New York Times:

"The lot was on the edge of the residential neighborhood of Carroll Gardens in Brooklyn, near a concrete plant and the Gowanus Canal, and it had an old garage on it. To many people, it wouldn’t have seemed like an obvious place to build a dream home. But when Philippe Baumann and Lisa Sardinas saw the property, they knew they wanted it."
