TEDx + Brooklyn + Instagram = iPhone paradise.

This weekend, 85 intrepid Instagrammers took to the streets of the Gowanus neighborhood in Brooklyn for a guided tour of the history, industry, and architecture of the area — organized by the team of TEDxGowanus.

We’re digging the snapshots that came out of this adventure (and a few others from Brooklyn TEDx’ers) — photos that show off the gritty beauty of one of Brooklyn’s great industrial hubs. 

You can find more photos from the Instameet through the tag #gowanusinspiried.
