Closing Bell: Greenest Block in Brooklyn


    GreenTeam_groupshot.jpgThe annual blue ribbon for the greenest block in Brooklyn goes to Lincoln Road between Rogers and Bedford Avenues. The contest, organized by GreenBridge, the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, and the borough president’s office, judges applicants based on several criteria for one block only, on both sides of the street, such as variety and subtlety of plants, horticultural practice, tree care, and soil. Applicants must be a block association, civic group, or neighborhood organization—in the case of this year’s winner, it was the Lincoln Road R&B Block Association. Congratulations Lincoln Roaders! As The Local notes, there were also a number of honorees in the Fort Greene and Clinton Hill area. You can also go to the contest page and view runners up and winners in several other categories.
