Built in 1910, 555 Washington Avenue AKA The Cathedral Condominiums is a Gothic-style building adorned with hallmark gargoyles, nestled in Brooklyn's coveted neighborhood Prospect Heights. Converted to 53 condominiums in 1988, The Cathedral Condominiums feature a central courtyard, a part-time doorman, laundry facilities and live-in super. Nesled on the confluence of Clinton Hill and Prospect Heights, residents get to enjoy countless restaurants, cafes, and shops. Prospect Park, Brooklyn Museum, Park Slope, Fort Greene Park and world class entertainment at Barclays Center are all nearby.
Home to Pratt Institute, one of the most prestigious art schools in the United States, and once a fashionable getaway for Brooklyn’s well-to-do, Clinton Hill is a small neighborhood, squeezed in between Fort Greene, Wallabout, and Bedford Stuyvesant, well on its way back to fame. Clinton Avenue, once known as the “Millionaire’s Row,” lined with extravagant mansions from the 1880’s and 1890’s, continues to excite architectural aficionados. Clinton Hill of today is an amazingly diverse and dynamic neighborhood, subject to a true real estate development frenzy: nearly every other block is seeing a new building constructed, or an existing one restored. This holds true to many other neighborhoods in the borough, but the trend seems to be at the most robust in Clinton Hill.
