Robert “Bob” Guskind, founder of Gowanus Lounge, 1958-2009
I knew Bob casually through the Brooklyn blog network, which is to say that I would see him at events here and there. He was an incredibly devoted and passionate writer, ceaselessly covering local stories. I remember riding at last year’s Tour de Brooklyn and seeing him on a street corner by the Brooklyn Navy Yard. You never knew where he would turn up. His energy and enthusiasm were matchless. He was dedicated to his craft and giving the community a voice for positive change. It was meeting people like Bob that gave me the inspiration to start this site. My deepest sympathy to his friends and family.
