Here are some additional photos from Friday’s trip to Clinton Hill.
I refer you to the Clinton Hill Historic District designation report for more information on any item with a year in parentheses, particularly on 356 Clinton Avenue, Cadman Memorial Church, and Emmanuel Baptist Church.
(I wish I had time to read a 200-page report before embarking on a trip, but sometimes you make awesome discoveries after you’re in the field.)
