NY Post/Cranbrook Gardens gets “world-grade” green spaces from Green Building magazine, and “is an example of how a neighborhood can transform into an exceptional green space,” the magazine says of its review.
The award goes to the Cranbrooks on West 25th Street in Greenwich Village, which is the first of its kind in New York City.
Cranbrook Gardens was founded in 2005, and it was one of two parks in the city awarded a Green Building Award.
The other was the Parks Foundation Green Building of the Year in 2012.
“The Garden was the perfect spot to create a welcoming environment, where visitors could experience a neighborhood where all of us could gather and be part of,” said David Tappin, executive director of the Parks and Green Building Council.
“This award is the result of the Cranborough community working together with its neighbors and partners to transform the area into a vibrant and vibrant place to live, work and play.”
The Green Building Awards honor places that are doing well for themselves, and those that have been innovative.
“It’s a testament to the work of the community to turn a small, overlooked community into an urban park,” said Tappins wife, Marie Gardens, who was also the director of Green Building at the time.
The Green Book, published in 2014, ranked New York’s neighborhoods on seven criteria: green spaces, affordability, quality of life, community, environment, and sustainability.
The rankings are based on a wide range of criteria, including how much green space is needed and the level of green space it contains.
It also looks at the impact of green building, and whether the building’s environmental impact and sustainability measures are up to international standards.
The city of New York is expected to award a second award later this year.
“We were very pleased with the work that was done on this project, which was very close to our hearts,” said Green Building director Sarah Stoddard.
“Green Building is an annual honor that honors local leaders who are doing outstanding work to support the health and vitality of the city.”
In an interview with the Post, Stoddards said she was inspired by Cranbrook.
“I think we’re doing a lot of great things in our city.
There’s a lot to celebrate,” she said.
“But we’ve got to keep doing things differently.
Cranbrook is the latest neighborhood to receive an award. “
And we’re not done yet.”
Cranbrook is the latest neighborhood to receive an award.
Last year, the Green Building award went to the City Hall neighborhood in Queens.
“That’s just a wonderful moment in time,” said Stodds.
“When the community and the community leaders are able to work together and make the changes needed to make that happen, and we can all get on with our lives.”
