The 2017 Greenest Block in Brooklyn Award Goes to This Busy Block in Bed-Stuy

Each year, the office of Brooklyn Borough President Eric L. Adams determines which of the thousands of blocks throughout Brooklyn is the "greenest". This year, the 23rd annual in the contest, the honor goes to a beautiful stretch of Stuyvesant Ave. between Bainbridge St. and Chauncey St. in Bed-Stuy.

Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams joined with the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, and National Grid to award the winners of the 2017 Greenest Block in Brooklyn contest. The Contest, presented and judged by the Brooklyn Botanic Garden (BBG), held a press conference on the victorious residential block, Stuyvesant Avenue between Bainbridge and Chauncey Streets, in the Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood.
