It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood

Royal Castle

Fulton Court

Two apartment buildings on Clinton Ave, in my neighborhood. I love that they have names. And I love how old and ornate they look. Clinton Hill is a registered historical neighborhood.

Back in the day (1800s), it was a fashionable, affluent neighborhood, lined with mansions. The most famous of mansion-owners was Charles Pratt (founder of the Pratt Institute), whose four mansions can be found on Clinton Ave between Dekalb and Willoughby.
