The Story Behind Brooklyn’s RV Community

The semi-mobile homes — equipped with water tanks and generators — have become refuges for Brooklynites unable to pay rent, residents say, and the communities are growing. Today, Brooklyn Paper Radio speaks to two RV owners who live under the Gowanus Expressway in Sunset Park to learn why they moved there, what their community is like, and why more Brooklynites are moving in.
