Greenstreets: Nature—Brooklyn Style

“In 1996, Parks began converting barren concrete triangles and traffic islands into Greenstreets, making the pavement spring to life by planting trees, shrubs and flowers.”

  1. I love the combination of the man-made and mother nature-made. It's one of the reasons why I find this city beautiful.

    This is Stephon. We talked at the Magnetic Field in Brooklyn Sunday night about the Mets and Steelers. Hope things are good with you.

  2. more like brownstreets. it's weird that they would put woodchips down instead of some sort of green groundcover like an ivy or something. still better than it was before i'm sure and it helps with runoff.
