Fall is one of Brooklyn’s best seasons. The trees lining our streets and parks are dressed in their glorious autumnal finery, the temperature drops enough that we can finally wear our nice sweaters and jackets, and the smell of wood burning isn’t limited to artisanal pizzerias. In the neighborhoods of Clinton Hill and Fort Greene, fall means beautiful sights in Fort Greene Park, fun Halloween events, and going down Myrtle Avenue with a pumpkin latte to keep your hands warm.
It’s in this area that you can find Navy Green, a brand-new block of townhomes and market-rate condos. To really appreciate this vibrant part of Brooklyn that could become your new neighborhood, here are five things to do this autumn in Fort Greene and Clinton Hill.
Show Clinton Hill You Scare
On the front lawn of 313 Clinton Street, this elaborate live show Halloween 313 has been entertaining thousands of visitors every October 31 since 1994. Past years’ themes have included “Pirates of the Scaribbean,” “Carnival of Carnage,” and “ApoCALYPSO,” and this year’s is “Malice in Underland.” The talented cast and crew, led by “Halloween lady” Janna Kennedy, create this spooky spectacle “for the love of their community and the Halloween spirit.”
