"Bad Apple" Award for the parks department

In honor of Earth Day, Natural Resources Defense Council has announced their second annual list of "Good Apple" and "Bad Apple" awards. It came as no surprise that they awarded the NYC Department of Parks & Recreation a "Bad Apple" award for their plans at Ridgewood Reservoir. Eric Goldstein, Director of NRDC's NY Urban Program, writes:

"For not yet heeding the call to preserve this unique natural setting in the heart of New York City (but with the understanding that it is not too late for a change of course), we award the Parks Department plans to develop the Ridgewood Reservoir landscape with an Earth Day 2008 Bad Apple designation."
