638 Dean Street, between Carlton and Vanderbilt

For Beautification Day this past Saturday members of our block association were out circulating information about upcoming changes to the tree beds on Dean Street.  The beautification efforts we normally undertake in the spring will take place instead in the fall after our new tree bed guards are installed.  This spring we still will be distributing free window boxes.  Please let us know if you are interested.


  • Metal Tree Guards:
    • Thanks to Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz’s Neighborhood Beautification Fund, many of the trees on Dean Street between 6th Avenue and Vanderbilt will be receiving metal tree bed guards!  More details to come as we get them.
  • Atlantic Yards:
    • Quality of life issues:  Help us set our priorities. Snow removal and sidewalk care. Dust. Noise. Rodents. Traffic. Parking.  Security.
    • The implications of Judge Friedman’s ruling that the Empire State Development Corporation must analyze the environmental impacts of the project based on a 25-year timeline rather than the 10-year timeline it has used so far.  What is the status of the court case now?
    • Atlantic Yards Watch
  • Neighborhood Beautification Day and Block Party: Setting the dates
