We love our neighborhood of Clinton Hill for its historic charm and accessibility to Manhattan. Its proximity to the more commercial areas of Fort Greene, Prospect Heights and Park Slope make it a convenient place to stay and we enjoy the relative peace it affords us from the bustle of the city!
The architecture is a mix of wood-frame houses predating the Civil War, Italianate mansions, carriage houses, brownstones, midrise apartment buildings and three- to five-story brick rowhouses. Some are scrupulously restored while others are shedding paint.
Clinton Avenue is the neighborhood’s grandest boulevard, named in honor of DeWitt Clinton, a former governor and mayor. Charles Pratt, an oil magnate and founder of Pratt Institute, and his sons commissioned graceful mansions that are part of the Clinton Hill Historic District.
