With a cornucopia of housing options — from 19th-Century carriage houses to the latest luxury loft conversions — there’s more to Clinton Hill than just the landmarked brownstones for which the neighborhood is known. House hunters might find a classic Clinton Hill three-family house renovated into a single-family 4,000-square-foot living space, or consider a duplex with a garden apartment. Plenty of one- and two-bedroom apartments are also available in Clinton Hill, as well as spectacular floor-throughs with the latest appliances. Be it a Romanesque mansion, a Victorian row house or a pre-Civil War frame house —whether you’re seeking a roof deck or a landscaped yard — all may be found here.
More The Clinton Hill Co-op features studios, one- and two-bedrooms for sale, as well as some rentals, in twelve mostly medium-rise brick buildings built in the ’40s. The Absolute on Myrtle at Steuben Street and The Azure on Classon Avenue, meanwhile, are five- and six-story glass luxury condominiums. Subway access is good, with the area served by the C and G lines, but with lovely tree-lined blocks and show-stopping churches, Clinton Hill is also a great neighborhood for walking. The intricately-stenciled Emmanuel Baptist Church is worth noting, as is Clinton Avenue, a grand boulevard that represents 19th-century Brooklyn. For restaurants and shopping head to Myrtle Avenue, a main thoroughfare. Pick up an inventive handbag or hat at the Barking Brown or pick up an entire fried turkey at Jive Turkey. For recreation, head over to Parham Playground on Willoughby Avenue, or grab Fido and head over to nearby Fort Greene Park. Less

Check out one of my favorites: Underwood Park on Lafayette and Washington Ave. It has, by far, one of the best water features with a large recessed area and plenty of sprinklers that becomes a wading pool. Heavenly on a hot summer afternoon!
