A Crown Heights block was named the greenest in Brooklyn for the 25th iteration of the Brooklyn Botanic Gardenís annual contest, which aims to promote streetscape planting and neighbor connectivity. Every year, neighbors throughout the borough come together to plant and make their blocks greener. Judges, including professional horticulturists from BBG, select the winners based on vibrant use of color, resident involvement, plant sustainability, street tree bed care, and soil and mulch maintenance, among other criteria. There are several categories including greenest residential and commercial blocks, greenest storefront, best street tree beds, best community garden streetscape, and best window box. In Crown Heights, a group called Preserving Lincolnís Abundant Natural Treasures (PLANTs) won in the residential category for their work on Lincoln Place between Nostrand and New York avenues. In Brooklyn Heights, Montague Street BID won in the commercial category for their work on Montague Street between Henry and Hicks streets.
