Downtown officials cut the ribbon, or should we say pruned the branches, on a glorious new median along Adams Street south of Fulton Street on Tuesday.

The new plantings, which include peach and cherry trees, complement similar medians previously installed along the entire stretch of the once-dour pathway to the Brooklyn Bridge. The roadway which now glistens with greenery — at a cost of $4.1 million of the more conventional green.
