At this morning’s festive award ceremony, Felicia Kinsey, the Macon Street block president, called out to an audience of families and long-time Bedford-Stuyvesant residents, “What have I been saying all year?” The crowd responded in unison: “Our block rocks!” They will receive a $300 award and a plaque naming them the greenest block.”
