The blogger behind the great Brooklyn based blog, Gowanus Lounge has passed away. His name was Robert Guskind. The blog tended to focus on development issues in the neighborhoods of Gowanus, Park Slope, Carrol Gardens, Coney Island and Williamsburg areas though it was truly a Brooklyn blog. It was the first Brooklyn blog that I became a loyal reader of. Many beautiful pictures from around Brooklyn were posted on the blog daily. I guess the blogs been out of service for a few days. Hopefully, someone will bring it back. Sad stuff.

You can check out his still active flickr page for some of his (and others) great photos of Brooklyn.
