Brooklyn Green Heatmap

Carroll Gardens (and almost all of the 39th District actually) among the densest parts of the city when it comes to street trees.  One thing I really love about this place.
The people at Rentenna sent over this "green heatmap" of Brooklyn which helps people locate apartments in neighborhoods with a lot of street trees, near parks, etc.  Clever idea.
BK blocks with the greatest concentrations of street trees (not trees in parks, but trees actually lining the streets) are highlighted bright green, while areas with a medium concentration of street trees are tinted purple, and areas largely devoid of street trees are left clear. Farmers’ markets are indicated by icons that read, well, “Farmers Market.” And major public parks are indicated by the park name and a giant tree icon.
