Back on the Hill
I first moved to Clinton Hill in the fall of 1993. I lived in a gorgeous brownstone (okay, it had a few problems) on St. James Place between Greene and Gates. I also lived on Carlton (which is technically Fort Greene). I moved back to Clinton Hill, this time on the other side of Fulton. I am thrilled to be back in the neighborhood, I always thought it had a charm unmatched in other neighborhoods. I look forward to exploring all the new areas, and revisiting the old. I have started a 'Community Walk' map - easily one of the coolest tools on the web which maps food, shops, etc in the area. I will fill it in with comments and pictures as we continue to explore. Please feel free to send me information or add comments here or too the map directly. I would love for this to be an ongoing and community project! I will double post reviews and pictures here and on the map. You can access the map here: http://www.communitywalk.com/map/2616
It is such a lovely thing that the day we moved in was something like the first day of spring in new york. It just felt right. The choco-kitty has been enjoying the sunny windows (we haven't had direct sun in about 7 years), and I and G-pup are enjoying the big kitchen, and the neighborhood.
Look forward to enjoying the neighborhood that all of you that already live here have helped to build and grow - sorry I have been gone for so long!
