Top 20 Clinton Hill, New York vacation rentals & luxury serviced apartments
A lush, elegant retreat from the tumult of city life, Clinton Hill is located in Central Brooklyn, and offers the youthful energy of a leafy college town with a laid-back, genteel atmosphere. Walk along the beautiful Clinton Avenue or the main retail corridor, Myrtle Avenue, and you’ll find young parents pushing strollers, artists in paint-splattered clothes, and students enjoying an alfresco meal. You’ll find a greater diversity of architectural styles here than elsewhere in Brooklyn: everything from 19th century wood-frame houses, to coveted brownstones, to Romanesque revival mansions and newer, luxury buildings, set on the wide avenues and cobblestones streets. Formerly a working-class enclave, it became home to stunning buildings and mansions in the 1920s, many constructed by famous architect Montrose Morris. The result today is a picturesque and easy-going neighbourhood that summons the grandiosity of the past. The easy access to both Fort Greene Park and Prospect Park means that a tree-shaded run or a picnic is never far-off.
