Rutland 1 Awarded Honorable Mention in the
2010 Greenest Block in Brooklyn Contest

Rutland Road Greenest Block In Brooklyn 2010Rutland Road between Flatbush Ave. and Bedford Ave. was awarded an Honorable Mention in the Brooklyn Botanic Garden’s "2010 Greenest Block in Brooklyn" Contest.
According to BBG President, Scott Medbury, 220 blocks from 20 neighborhoods participated in the contest. "It’s a reminder of the incredible growth of this borough. Brooklyn is famous for its ‘can do’ attitude and its one-of-a-kind style." From mid-June through July a panel of more than 30 judges visited the blocks. Each block is is judged by a number of criteria such as color, plant variety, plant suitablility, street trees, and street tree-bed care.

Last year Lincoln Road between Bedford Ave. and Rogers Ave. took first place. It’s good to know that Lefferts Manor still has game. Congradulations to Rutland 1 and all of the home owners, who worked hard throughout this hot and dry summer, for this win!
