Brooklyn Greens!

In keeping with our earlier post on the "white roofs" movement as a potential mass employment opportunity for low-skilled youth, City Limits Magazine is running a photo essay on Brooklyn Greens, a three-year, $750,000 initiative that will work to produce 480 energy efficient retrofitted homes, apartment buildings, facilities and small businesses, construct 130 units of new green residential housing, train 140 community residents in green-collar jobs, and plant 750 street trees and create or improve 12 neighborhood green spaces in Williamsburg, Bedford Stuyvesant and Cypress Hills.

A good start, but still just a drop in the (paint) bucket . . .
