East 25th Street between Clarendon Road and Avenue D ws named the "Greenest Block in Brooklyn" for 2016.

The deadline to have your block crowned the greenest in the borough is fast approaching.

The last day to enter the 23rd annual Greenest Block in Brooklyn Contest – presented by the Brooklyn Botanic Garden in cooperation with Borough President Eric Adams and support from the Brooklyn Community Foundation – is Thursday, June 1.

The yearly contest promotes neighborliness and sustainability by encouraging streetscape gardening, tree stewardship and community development – and involvement – throughout Brooklyn.

Last year, East Flatbush’s own East 25th Street between Clarendon Road and Avenue D took home the title of “Greenest Block in Brooklyn.” A strip in Park Slope nabbed second place, while another in Lefferts Garden was crowned third.
