A song about the Gowanus Canal, an industrial waterway that runs about two miles through Brooklyn, New York, from Butler Street to New York Bay. Words & music by Steve Suffet. Back-up vocals by Jessica Feinbloom, Joel Landy, and Anne Price.
A friend named Maggie Bye once asked me if I knew any songs about the Gowanus Canal. I told her I didn't, but if she gave me a couple of hours I would have one for her. In reality it took me less than an hour to write.
