The Fort Greene/Clinton Hill area has always been a desirable neighborhood, due to its beautiful architecture and proximity to transportation. Fort Greene is located minutes away from the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges, making it an easy commute to Manhattan. Public transportation is provided by 14 subway lines (2, 3, 4, 5, A, B, C, D, F, G, M, N, Q, and R), about 20 bus lines, and the LIRR. Although a small area geographically, it's packed with cultural and architectural treasures.
The centerpiece of the area is the 30-acre Fort Greene Park, which was designed by Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux, and completed in the mid-19th century. The park features a playground and tennis courts, as well as the 148-foot-tall Prison Ship Martyrs' Monument. Nearby 10-acre Commodore J. Barry Park is the oldest park in the borough.
One of New York City's most famous cultural attractions is located in Fort Greene. The Brooklyn Academy of Music complex offers a variety of entertainment, including theater and opera performances, classic movies, and diverse dance programs. Across the plaza from the BAM is the world-renowned Mark Morris Dance Institution. A few blocks away, in Clinton Hill, is the Pratt Institute, one of the leading art schools, which offers programs in art, architecture, design, writing, and many other areas.
A multitude of ethnic restaurants and cafes is lighting up the nightlife. Traditional commercial zones, such as Lafayette, Fulton, Myrtle, and DeKalb Avenues, are being converted into mixed-use corridors, providing space for small businesses as well as entertainment. Between the influx of business, the growing art community, and the expansion and restoration of living space, the quality of life and the neighborhood's economy are sure to grow for years to come.
