Montague Street BID Wins Greenest Commercial Block in Brooklyn

The Montague Street BID sends word that it was awarded Greenest Commercial Block in Brooklyn at a press conference on Wednesday held by the Brooklyn Botanic Garden.

From the BID:

BID Executive Director Brigit Pinnell and Vice President Estela Johannesen attended the event. When acknowledged as the winning commercial block, Ms. Pinnell gave thanks to Ms. Johannesen and her team at James Weir Floral for their efforts to create and maintain the District's beautiful landscaping.

The BID has worked diligently over the last few years to enhance its landscaping efforts. A novel approach to use hanging planters along the District's tree guards was implemented in a pilot program two years ago. Using hanging baskets in the tree beds produced larger, more lush plants. A resounding success, the pilot program was expanded District-wide last year.

The BID is honored to be recognized as the Borough's Greenest Commercial Block. The award serves to further cement Montague Street's reputation as an idyllic place to shop and dine.
