Montague Street BID Wins “Greenest Block” Award

The Montague Street Business Improvement District (BID) won this year’s “Greenest Commercial Block in Brooklyn” award, given by management of the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. Presumably the specific block in question is that between Clinton and Henry streets (see photo).
Accepting the award, BID Executive Director Brigit Pinnell thanked BID Vice President Estela Johannesen, of James Weir Floral Company (photo above), and her team from the store “for their efforts to create and maintain the District’s beautiful landscaping.”

    I just saw some workers out watering the lush planters in front of Le Pain Quotidian. Definitely a positive step for a street that’s had its share of problems retail- and restaurant-wise. On a side-note, the newly paved streets in the hood are also looking quite good now.

    I agree, but they missed Love Lane and College Place. Love Lane is a patchwork of “fill-ins” at the moment, it is disgusting and difficult to walk on.
