This is the old BMT powerplant in Gowanus, also known at the Batcave. Revelations that it was a squatters paradise nearly three years ago prompted anonymous threats to a photographer and an anonymous online harassment campaign that was referred to in the New York Times on Sunday. (The cyber stalker’s real identity is known to us.) The top view, from Stephanie Faith Wiens, is from the Gowanus Whole Foods property, which remains accessible to the general public from time to time! The bottom shot is from our contributor F. Jasmin Adams, taken yesterday from the end of Bond Street.
