Clinton Hill, Brooklyn

Wedged between Fort Greene and Bedford-Stuyvesant, the tree-lined blocks of Brooklyn's Clinton Hill, named for the sixth governor of New York, DeWitt Clinton, are adorned with majestic brownstones, historic mansions and Victorians. Its northern boundary is Flushing Avenue and the Brooklyn Navy Yard and its southern boundary is Atlantic Avenue. From east to west, it stretches from Vanderbilt Avenue to Classon Avenue.
