Clinton Hill Commerce & Culture
Clinton Hill’s vibe places somewhere between a low-key urban village and a sleepy upstate college town. Myrtle Avenue and Fulton Street — at the neighborhood's northern and southern edges, respectively — are its busiest commercial thoroughfares, leaving the blocks in between unusually serene by New York City standards. When it comes to dining out, Clinton Hill has its share of can’t-miss cuisine. Its substantial platter of choices spills over in both the Bed-Stuy and Fort Greene directions and across Atlantic Avenue into Prospect Heights. Going further? The neighborhood has stops on the G train at Classon and Clinton-Washington avenues, as well as A/C service at (a separate) Clinton-Washington station and even more lines — LIRR included — at nearby Atlantic Terminal.
