The winners have been announced for the 16th annual Greenest Block contest run by the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. Drum roll please: the Greenest Blocks in Brooklyn this year are in Flatbush and Boerum Hill! The residential first-place winner went to Vanderveer Place between Flatbush Avenue and East 23rd Street in Flatbush; the 2010 commercial first-place winner was declared Hoyt Street between State Street and Atlantic Avenue in Boerum Hill. The winners were announced at a press conference this morning held at Vanderveer Place, where those who received top place in the other categories were also on hand.
