The clean-up is underway in the Gowanus Canal and some of the items retrieved from the bottom of the polluted waterway are being displayed by the United States Environmental Protection Agency.
A neighborhood group called F.R.O.G.G. (Friends and Residents of Greater Gowanus) hopes the items will end up in a museum.
The $506 million project has been in the works for years. The clean up is set to continue through 2022.
