TONY’s best streets led by Fort Greene’s own

Filed under: Uncategorized — ltjbukem1 @ 7:21 pm

Via curbed, Time Out NY has come out with its’ list of 50 best blocks in New York City and Fort Greene’s South Portland between Dekalb and Lafayette finished first. #21 was Park Place between Carlton and Vanderbilt in Prospect Heights and #31 was Clinton Avenue between Myrtle and Park in Clinton Hill.

At left is a view of South Portland from Lafayette after a snowstorm in January 2005.



  1. Ooo, I agree. S. Portland is one of the most beautiful streets I’ve seen. In the summer, it looks like a jungle with all the leafy trees!av

  2. via How ironic that This street will be in shadow most of the year if The Ratner debacle “Atlantic Yards” project gets built.

  3. Oh please, S Portland is always in shadow.

    On another note, Clinton between Myrtle and Park? I think the TONY editors were smoking something when they made these choices. I love the nabe and all, but come on. S Portland is a gorgeous street, but #1 in the city is pretty ridiculous as well.
