About 501 Union

Located just off the industrious Gowanus Canal, 501 Union plays host to Nearly Impossible for a second year.

Erected in 1916, this building served in the restoration of classic cars through the glory years of the American automotive industry. It was brought back to life in 2013 by Akiva Reich & Co. Embedded in the stone and steel of this quiet landmark is the timeless integrity of a continually modern New York.


501 Union
501 Union Street
Brooklyn, NY 11231


Going with traffic, 501 Union is a low, black building situated on the left side of the street.

Subway: F/G to Carroll Street or R to Union Street.

Street parking is also available.

Don’t undertake a project unless it is
manifestly important and nearly impossible.
