It’s not easy staying abreast Clinton Hill, but when something comes up, it always seems to be a must-see or experience event.
The main thing I’ve noticed since covering Clinton Hill, and speaking and meeting the residents and City Advocates, is how tightly knit and community outreach-based they are. I am actually considering moving out to the Hill, despite the fact that it is a bit pricey, because it lends to the old saying “You get what you pay for”.
On Saturday, September 18, 2010 from 12-6 p.m., The WA GREENE Block Association hosted its First Annual Street Fair: Septemberfest, which included merchants from Fulton Avenue between Vanderbuilt and Classon. This was in efforts to help residents acquire a better understanding about the local businesses servicing the Hill. The Greene Hill Food Co-op was there to assist new members.
The Brooklyn Flea in Fort Greene, featured over 100 vendors and an array of vintage, antiques, jewelry and food; even a scavenger hunt with items hidden among over 30 vendors in the Vault. FYI…This happens every Saturday, and is held outdoors in the Bishop Loughlin schoolyard at 176 Lafayette Avenue from 10-5 p.m.
