PlantTherapy: Greenest Block 2008

Pin it button
The winner this year was Park Slope, and it was 8th Street between Prospect Park West and 8th Avenue that snagged the title. It is a beautiful area to walk through. This award keeps getting more and more coveted as the years pass. And although the winner has a lot to crow about, it is the list of semi-finalists that I am always interested to read. The semi-finalist list this year has East Flatbush, Bedford-Stuyvesant, Park Slope, and Prospect Park South with the largest entries represented. Very different neighborhoods in many ways, but this list shows that these areas are all strong on one thing: a sense of community. A block doesn't get beautiful on its own.

Congratulations to everyone who rolled up their sleeves and entered!

The BBG has a complete listing of the residential and commercial awards for 2008on their website.

This past week Brownstoner put up a very nice slideshow and post on the winners.
