A beautification project along Sutphin Boulevard from Foch Boulevard to Brinkerhoff Avenue has been completed.
Councilwoman Adrienne Adams coordinated with the Horticultural Society of New York and the Thomas White Jr. Foundation on the project.
Workers cleaned and mulched tree pits in this weekly effort. Horticultural Society members also educated volunteers, providing them job training and work experience.
Adams says the project transforms the commercial corridor, helping local merchants generate more business and have more pride in the district.
“Clean streets and sidewalks are part of building welcoming, vibrant communities,” Adams says. “Business districts and residents deserve no less.”
