Christmas Tree Mulchfest 2012

 

 

Chip in! Mulch your tree! Help NYC grow!

Bring your holiday tree to a designated city park to be recycled into mulch that will nourish plantings across the city!  The designated tree chipping site within Brooklyn’s Community District 14 is Prospect Park Circle at Parkside Avenue and Prospect Park Southwest. You can bring your tree to any chipping location throughout the five boroughs on January 7 and 8 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. For those with a green thumb, you can even take home your very own bag of mulch to use in your backyard garden or to make a winter bed for a street tree.

The NYC Department of Sanitation will also be conducting special curbside collections for mulching and recycling of Christmas trees from January 3 through January 14. Leave your unwrapped, undecorated tree on the curb and the Department of Sanitation will arrange a pick-up by Saturday, January 14th.

Join the New York City Department of Parks & Recreation, the New York City Department of Sanitation, and GreeNYC in this citywide green effort! Last year, close to 17,000 Christmas trees were recycled. Please help us top this number!

NY Times: Midwood is Where Prosperity Breeds Proximity

The New York Times’ Vivian Toy did an excellent write-up on Midwood in Community District 14 in the paper’s Real Estate section:

WHERE PROSPERITY BREEDS PROXIMITY
by Vivian Toy

MANY blocks in Midwood, with its rows of orderly detached homes and private driveways, give the feeling of a carefully planned suburb — a serene surprise after turning off a thoroughfare like Coney Island Avenue or Ocean Parkway.

But closer inspection reveals that the landscape has, in fact, been altered: on virtually every block, at least one or two homes have been significantly expanded — built up, built out, even built down.
