AMNY gives Clinton Hill a look this week, noting that Pratt Institute and the handsome housing stock have drawn residents, especially since Myrtle Avenue has been on an upswing. "Dubbed 'Murder Avenue' during the sharp decline of the 1970s, the street has improved dramatically since then, with the help of community groups and citizens throughout the neighborhood who have made efforts to open new businesses and restore housing, much of which was in a state of disrepair," they write. The roundup of places to eat, party and shop include Kum Kau, "the best greasy Chinese food in Brooklyn"; Outpost, which has outdoor movies in warmer months; and Repop, the vintage furniture store near the Navy Yard. More here.
