Congratulations are in order for a few Park Slope blocks and windows, which were presented awards in the Brooklyn Botanic Garden 2014 Greenest Block in Brooklyn contest. We all know we’ve got a neighborhood full of colorful streetscape gardening, beautifully maintained trees, and stoops lined with potted greenery, but it’s always wonderful to see our neighbors’ hard work acknowledged.

Pictured above is Sterling Place between Flatbush and 7th Avenues, submitted to the contest by the Sterling Place Block Association, which tied for 3rd place in the Residential Category.
