Why is Crow Hill, a swath of Crown Heights running roughly between Franklin and Classon and Atlantic and Eastern Parkway, called Crow Hill? Well, even folks at the Crow Hill Community Association aren't sure, but they aim to find out, as part of their attempt to gauge interest in landmarking the area. One reason for the landmark status: the neighborhood is sandwiched between Crown Heights North, already landmarked, and Prospect Heights, which is up for the designation, leaving it "very vulnerable to development," says Nina Meledandri, who handles public relations for CHCA. They'll meet to tonight to discuss the endeavor at 7:30PM at the Haitian American Daycare Center: 1491 Bedford Avenue at St. John's.
