Gowanus Canal, Brooklyn.  July 6, 2015.

Gas processing plants, petroleum cleaning warehouses, and scrap metal and ironworks companies bank the canal along its entire length.  Sights like this are frequent.  Plans are underway to reinhabit the canal with oysters, which can filter 50 gallons of polluted water a day.
