BEST CONTEST THAT MAY OR MAY NOT LEAD TO INTER-NEIGHBORHOOD SABATOGE

The Greenest Block in Brooklyn Contest

Brought to you by Greenbridge, a “community environmental
horticultural program” of the Brooklyn Botanical Garden, this contest
is pretty much what it sounds like: a no-holds-barred battle for
ultimate green block status (in both commercial and residential
categories). The current title-holder is 8th Street between Eight
Avenue and Prospect Park West, in Park Slope (shocker, there), and
there’s still time to enter and knock the snooty Slopers off their
green pedestal. Categories also include Best Street Tree Beds, Greenest
Storefront, Best Window Box and Best Community Garden Streetscape.
(Also shocking, Williamsburg hasn’t placed in any of the categories,
ever.)

  • Time’s Up rocks! I personally volunteer with this group and it’s amazing how much they get done with only volunteers and a very small budget. You can truly see the positive changes all over the city. Time’s Up definitely deserves this award after all of it’s long hard work and it’s nice to see they are finally being recognized. Thank you Time’s Up for making my New York City a more environmentally friendly place.
