BROOKLYN - Bainbridge Street in Bedford-Stuyvesant has been named the borough's "Greenest Block" by the Brooklyn Botanic Garden.

Hundreds from across the borough applied for the competition. They were judged on multiple factors, including variety of plants, maintenance, use of color and citizen participation.
