Local artist Rich Garr leads this safe [masked, socially distant] open-air exploration through the Gowanus waterfront. He is a longtime area artist focusing on public art and community. This walking tour is a multi-sensory collage featuring art, and responding to the area's renowned history and current events.

Swoon, Mast, Guild, Wolf Tits and other funky street artists are typically featured. So are historical landmarks, architectural gems, hidden art spaces, and the work of anonymous "green guerillas" and graffiti writers. While old pollution lingers, so do new issues surrounding gentrification and re-zoning. The area is changing rapidly, and this tour features real-time information and insight. This route changes by the month, but always passes quirky art and recreational spaces (fencing, climbing, ax throwing, etc.). Local artists and businesses are always highlighted- classic pillars and young innovators alike.

We depart from Gowanus Corner at 400 4th Ave. (@ 6th St.) on the edge of Park Slope, very close to the F, G & R trains. The walk lasts about 1.5 hours.

The walk ends on a literal high, overlooking our footsteps and amidst unique food and drink options (where further discussion is encouraged). Tickets often sell out, and cannot be purchased after 8am on the morning of the walk... so try to get them early!

Rich Garr is a local interdisciplinary artist and insider. He's got the stories behind the walls of renowned street artists, anonymous graffiti writers and canal side "green guerillas." He has intimate knowledge of the our waterfront neighborhood- both institutions like the Old Stone House, and hidden alternative art spaces like Ortega y Gasset gallery.

Rich holds a NYC Tour Guide license tour guide and is CPR / First Aid certified. He is a Gowanus artist who studied art & history and worked at the Cleveland Museum teaching art to youth. Upon returning to NYC he worked at the Brooklyn Museum helping plan interdisciplinary programming. Freelancing followed, as did an art studio in Gowanus Brooklyn.

This was a great opportunity to get to know the neighborhood and hear the story of the art. The guide along the way ran into several artists and residents that he knew, which made it feel like we were an authentic part of the community.

Great tour! Our guide was super knowledgeable and even gave us extra time to see some additional artists, plus special surprises from street artists along the way. Really helps you feel like you know the neighborhood.

Rich is fantastic. He is extremely personable, knowledgable, and courteous. He even spent extra time with us after the tour formally ended. There's no one better to learn about Gowanus street art from!

Rich was a great tour guide of Gowanus. We explored the neighborhood and not only learned about the history of the area but saw lots of cool art. Would definitely do another tour with Rich and would 10/10 recommend to both native New Yorkers and tourists.

Rich did a fantastic job leading the tour. It was a fun combination of local history, teachings about the basic lingo and history of graffiti and personal stories about artists. I really enjoyed the personal touch and the overall hidden treasures we discovered. It was a great value and an intimate New York experience that felt super authentic and not “touristy” (in fact all of us on the tour lived in New York and several people lived in the neighborhood)
