A boat navigates down the polluted Gowanus Canal on in the Brooklyn borough of New York. The 140-year-old Brooklyn waterway was named as a Superfund site by the federal Environmental Protection Agency. The move to cleanup of the Gowanus, which was opposed by the Bloomberg administration, will cost between $300 million and $500 million and could take 10 to 12 years.
