About Clinton Hill Neighborhood

Neighborhood Map image

Clinton Hill is mix of historic townhouses and brownstones, small boutique shops and great restaurants. It’s cozy artistic and suburban vibe will make you forget you’re living in the hustle bustle of New York City. The Pratt Institute and St. Joseph’s College contribute to the fact that many residents are young, artsy millennials. Located in the north central part of Brooklyn, this under-the-radar eclectic neighborhood has a vibrant culinary and culture scene. Myrtle and Dekalb Avenues are where you will find some of the most amazing eateries like U-gu (yummy sushi spot) or Dosa Royale (trendy Indian spot). Housing prices are rising as many are flocking to the area as a compromise to its more expensive neighbor, Fort Greene.
