Interaction with Guests
We live in the apartment upstairs & may or may not be home during your stay.
We love Clinton Hill for its historic charm, the accessibility to Manhattan, its proximity to the more commercial areas of Ft. Greene & Prospect Heights, & for the relative peace it affords us from the bustle of the city!
