It must be the rear of the building.

A mural plastered on the side of a Gowanus building attempted to celebrate the South Brooklyn neighborhood — but opening the garage door reveals an unfortunate mistake.

The name “Gowanus” stretches in huge white letters across the music studio at 156 6th Street with the “W” placed almost entirely on a garage door — leaving the mural to read “Go Anus” when the door is opened.

The building’s owner, Louis Petrosino, said the door is sealed with concrete in the bottom and insulation foam to prevent the gate from moving.

“I didn’t realize the ‘W’ is on the gate,” a DJ, who did not disclose his name, said. “Too bad it doesn’t open — it would be funny.”

The Brooklyn building is home to Pirates.com, a recording space for musicians and podcasters creatives for audio production. One DJ using the property said the gate is likely insulated to contain the traveling sound.

The mural’s artist is a mystery. There is no tag on the art and Petrosino isn’t sure when it was painted, but thought it was funny.

Not all of the area’s neighbors find the faux pas amusing, however.

“It’s silly,” Barbara Conn, 67, of Park Slope told The Post as she was dropping her dog off at a doggy daycare on the block.

“We have bigger issues right now. I’m more concerned about gentrification in this area than a mural saying ‘Go Anus’.”
