Perched on a hill, and bounded by Vanderbilt Avenue, the Brooklyn Navy Yard, Atlantic Avenue and Classon Avenue, Clinton Hill is another picturesque neighborhood of Brownstone Brooklyn, with architectural highlights that will leave jaws dropped. Here, you will find many beautiful brownstones and historic mansions built for Brooklyn’s original captains of industry in the 1800s, filling quiet tree-lined streets, along with apartment buildings and brick rowhouses. Like the rest of historic brownstone Brooklyn where supply is capped by historic districts, homes are expensive, but the non-historic section of the neighborhood north of Myrtle Avenue remains relatively affordable. Home to Pratt Institute and St. Joseph’s College, Clinton Hill has a cultural atmosphere and a young, family friendly, low-key vibe..
When Clinton Hill was developed, with a maximum elevation of 95 feet, it was believed to have health benefits because many people believed disease was more prevalent in low-lying areas.
