FORT GREENE & CLINTON HILL, BROOKLYN  
Join Justin Ferate as we explore two adjacent Brooklyn neighborhoods: Fort Greene and Clinton Hill – both now newly chic. At the turn of the 20th century, Fort Greene’s Washington Park and nearby Clinton Avenue were among Brooklyn’s most fashionable addresses. In the era of World War II, the neighborhoods experienced decline, but have now seen major turnarounds. The impressive array of 19th century wooden, brick, and brownstone mansions and rowhouses comprises one of the city’s great treasure troves of domestic architecture. This ethnically diverse community is popular with artists, designers, and filmmakers – among others. Sights will include grand brownstone streets, the “mansion row” of the Pratt family, Pratt Institute, and landmarks such as Stanford White’s great Revolutionary War Martyrs’ Monument – arguably one of this nation’s most important Revolutionary War memorials. End your tour at Junior’s Restaurant for a slice of their world-renowned cheesecake.

Tour ends near the D, Q Trains at DeKalb Avenue and the IRT 2, 4 Trains at Nevins Street.
