Clinton Hill Apartments

Surrounded by Prospect Heights, Crown Heights, Bedford-Stuyvesant, Fort Greene and Williamsburg, it lies at the intersection of some of Brooklyn’s most unique neighborhoods, tapping into the best parts of each with a charm all its own.

North-central Brooklyn neighborhood Clinton Hill begins at Vanderbilt Avenue to the east and Classon Avenue to the west, and from Atlantic Avenue to the south and Flushing Avenue north.

Clinton Hill is known for being one of Brooklyn’s brownstone neighborhoods, and several parts of the area are on the National Register of Historic Places. These include Clinton Avenue’s mansions and Italiante and Beaux-Arts row houses as well as the Clinton Hill South Historic District.

Clinton Hill’s reputation as a fashionable neighborhood was in place in 1840, when its residents, along with those in nearby Fort Greene, could easily commute to Manhattan via a stagecoach to the Fulton Ferry. Walt Whitman, a resident of Brooklyn, lived in Clinton Hill for part of 1855, and he completed Leaves of Grass while living here at 99 Ryerson Street; the building is part of the area.

More about Clinton Hill

At the heart of Clinton Hill is the Pratt Institute, which gives the neighborhood a unique atmosphere and an exciting collection of art, viewable in public installations on the campus and at regularly scheduled open studio events. Founded in Brooklyn in 1887, Pratt is known for its majors in fine art, engineering, or architecture, and these areas of study are reflected in Pratt’s campus and its impact on the surrounding neighborhood.

This neighborhood is still less expensive than some of the surrounding areas, but Clinton Hill is quickly catching up in terms of neighborhood amenities, and restaurants, cafes, bars, shops, grocery stores and galleries are quickly populating its blocks. Myrtle Avene is a main thoroughfare, but nearly all of the neighborhood’s avenues have retail storefronts that can satisfy residents’ needs. Bar and beer garden Hot Bird brings neighbors together for a cold brew, and residents eat at Cajun restaurant SoCo, American restaurant Maggie Brown, and Italian spot Locanda Vini e Olii, among many others. The Brooklyn Flea, a popular year-round market, is in nearby Fort Greene.

The A and C trains run through Clinton Hill and stop at Clinton-Washington avenues. The G train also serves the neighborhood, with stops at Clinton-Washington as well as Classon Avenue, and connects riders to other parts of Brooklyn and Queens. A variety of local buses also run through Clinton Hill.
