For more than two decades, the Brooklyn Botanic Garden has annually bestowed the title of Greenest Block in Brooklyn on the borough’s most verdant streets. Just yesterday, they announced the latest winner — a lush stretch of Bainbridge Street between Malcolm X Boulevard and Stuyvesant Avenue in Bed Stuy.

Browstoner thought it was peak season to take a look back at the Greenest Blocks of years past. Flatbush is the most-awarded neighborhood — two of its blocks have won six of the 21 titles — followed by Bed Stuy, which has won four.
