After hunting for the month of July, the intrepid folks at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden found the winner for the 19th iteration of their Greenest Block in Brooklyn contest. Sterling Street between Bedford and Washington Avenues in Prospect Lefferts Gardens edged out nearly 200 other residential streets for the title.


You can check out photos of the verdant, abloom street for inspiration (or just jealousy) below. Note the old whiskey barrels reused as planters for flowers, grasses and small trees—pretty cool, and so Brooklyn!
