Clean water advocate swims the heavily polluted Gowanus Canal

GOWANUS, Brooklyn —The man who became the first person in history to swim the Gowanus Canal did it again and swam the heavily polluted waterway.

To celebrate Earth Day, Christopher Swain swam near the mouth of the Gowanus Canal to the new waterfront park at 365 Bond Street in Brooklyn as he continues to campaign for a cleaner waterway.

Swain was escorted by a safety crewmember as he swam one of America’s most polluted waterways.

Why would someone want to swim a toxic body of water more...
