Gowanus Wunderkammer

Screen Shot 2018-03-17 at 8.07.25 AMThis is an archival website run by the Gowanus Souvenir Shop documenting the artifacts of the The Gowanus Wunderkammer People’s Archive Program. Every month locals are invited to bring objects they have found in Gowanus to the shop. The items are displayed for a month in the shop’s Wunderkammer, properly catalogued, and added to the online archive. The goal is to tell the history of the Gowanus using the objects people have found in the neighborhood and the stories connected to finding them.
