Everyone enjoys the BID’s beautification and landscaping initiatives along Montague Street year round
Lamp Posts in Bloom
Each Spring, the BID hangs more than 50 baskets bursting with colorful flowers and dangling vines on the light poles up and down Montague Street.
Notice the bursts of color hanging from the District’s tree pit guards? The BID’s landscaper, local business James Weir Floral plants and maintains these tree guard hanging baskets in our tree pits every Spring and Summer.
50 Street Trees Grow on Montague Street in Brooklyn
50 trees on Montague Street add to the overall dense and healthy canopy of trees in Brooklyn Heights. The District’s arborist regularly prunes and amends the soil of these trees to ensure that they remain healthy and add to the health and beauty of the neighborhood.
Light it Up
In late Fall, the BID wraps the trees and light poles along Montague Street with more than 18 miles of festive holiday lights and fresh garland to help brighten chilly nights and extend the holiday spirit.
A series of banners hang high on the ‘bishop crook’ style street poles to create a unified identity for the District and add a sense of festivity to the street.
Everyone appreciates taking a seat on one of the benches along Montague Street to enjoy the view. The benches, funded and installed by a grant from the Department of Transportation at no cost to the BID or the neighborhood are a respite in between errands.
The benches, street poles and tree pit guards were all provided for funded through grants obtained by the BID
Matching black trash receptacles are also provided and maintained by the BID.
