Clinton Hill Neighborhood Guide

Clinton Hill is a Brooklyn neighborhood well known for its diversity of restaurants, homes, and activities. Residents run the gamut from students at Pratt Institute to ambitious professionals. It's an artsy neighborhood, but not overly so. It's laidback, but there's plenty to do.

Some homes are brand new, others are vintage but well maintained, while others need some TLC. There's a lot of history here, so it's no surprise that landmarks abound.
