WILLIAMSBURG - Bushwick Inlet Park has been named one of America's top 10 green buildings.

The park literally wraps around a building, insulating and keeping costs down. The building uses recycled rainwater and is also heated by solar panels.

Park architects say this helps the environment and cuts costs.

The park was honored by the American Institute of Architects and the Committee on the Environment.
