Meet Matt Allison, the GO Neighborhood Coordinator for Gowanus. There are some people who come into an interview and just knock your socks off and Matt is just one of those people. Matt came in with such enthusiasm for his neighborhood and GO that he inspired us. He’s an artist who has a Gowanus studio and you may find him walking his pug, Jaxon, around the neighborhood, just as I did when biking home through the Gowanus one evening on my way home to Red Hook from the Museum. In his own words…
I’ve lived in Gowanus for a little over 2 years.
You’ll most often find me hanging out at either a quiet spot along the Canal or sharing a meal and drinks with friends.
I’ll never move from Gowanus because its potential seems limitless and it will take me a lifetime to explore all of its nooks and crannies.
