I moved, with my fiancé, from Portland to Brooklyn six months ago. We moved into a railroad style apartment in a Brownstone building. We have the entire top floor of the building to ourselves, and we absolutely adore it. We’re SURROUNDED by grocery markets, restaurants, bars, and parks. It’s very quiet, very residential, and very comfortable. We also live 2 blocks from the Home Depot, which has been a HUGE lifesaver on multiple occasions.

Clinton Hill, a neighborhood in Brooklyn New York is filled with tree-lined ideal streets of iconic Brooklyn brownstones and an eclectic array of charming bars and restaurants. Walk down Myrtle and stumble upon a new restaurant boasting southern-caribbean fusion, next door to your favorite, dingy, dive-bar hosting trivia night to the local Pratt students. Across from your auto garage, is the array of supermarkets that make the Manhattanites swoon in jealousy over affordable hand soap. And while being situated south of Williamsburg and north of downtown Brooklyn, centered in the most expensive real estate in the New York city, the rent has mysteriously stayed low enough for the diverse community to live comfortably. The mix of native Brooklynites, students, and Manhattan by and Brooklyn homeowners by night, keeps the Wednesday night softball league interesting; the high rise luxury apartments going up next to the Hasidic owned bakery from 1928 keeps it truly Brooklyn.
My wife and I moved to Clinton Hill in 1964 into a Mitchell-Lama development on Lafayette & Grand Ave. Uncomfortably high crime rate at the time. After 53 years we are still at the same location. Crime has significantly decreased. The
present problem being an unreasonable amount of tenants that can afford higher rents at the expense of lower income tenants of the Black community.
