Building Blocks

Asphalt jungle? Hardly. As gardeners in neighborhoods all around Brooklyn are showing, our city streets can be lush, verdant oases. Just visit Lincoln Road, between Bedford and Rogers Avenues in Lefferts Gardens. Or check out the tree beds on Bainbridge Street between Malcom X Boulevard and Stuyvesant in Bed-Stuy, or the window boxes on 10th Street between 7th and 8th Avenues in Park Slope. These are just a few winners of GreenBridge's Greenest Block in Brooklyn 2012 contest which were just announced today. Click for the complete list of winners and more inspiring photos. Then get out and see some of the winning blocks for yourself!
