Bob of Gowanus Lounge Passed Away

We are saddened by the news that our good friend and fellow Brooklyn blogger Bob Guskind has passed away yesterday. He was a pioneer of Brooklyn blogging and we corresponded when both Gowanus Lounge, his blog (now offline), and DumboNYC started. We occasionally saw Bob around Dumbo taking photos and reporting about Dumbo events. We haven’t heard from Bob for a few days, and waiting to hear further news on the cause of his death. We normally exchanged correspondence about news in Brooklyn, and was called by some, the father of Brooklyn blogging for his prolific postings and news about Brooklyn. In the meantime, we extend our sincere condolences to his family and loved ones. The above photo is a photo of a scene at Prospect Park, the last photo he uploaded on March 2 on his flickr page, which he regularly posted on. We will miss you.
