The late architect Wallace Harrison had a major role in developing some of New York City’s most iconic structures, including Rockefeller Center, the United Nations, and Lincoln Center. Harrison, who was a close friend to Nelson Rockefeller, also designed the Clinton Hill Co-ops, a 12-building complex spread across two campuses in Clinton Hill. A charming and sunny junior two-bedroom at the historic complex is now available for $699,000.

The Clinton Hill Co-ops were built between 1941 and 1943 and contain a north campus and a south campus with over 500 apartments. According to Brownstoner, the complex was built to house Navy Yard workers during World War II.

Located at 185 Clinton Avenue on the north campus, the available home offers a functional layout with a sun-drenched living space with French doors that lead to a windowed alcove. While it’s currently used as an office, this space, which has two windows, two doors, and closet space, could easily become a second bedroom, home gym, or nursery.

The living room is spacious and flows from the entry foyer and dining area. The kitchen is small, but efficient, with a dishwasher and other stainless steel appliances. Another large window keeps the modest room bright.


Sun also shines on the south-facing primary bedroom, which benefits from a pair of windows, two closets, and a hall closet in the hall outside.

Perks of the building include 24/7 security and low maintenance, which includes heat, water, and gas. The complex has a co-generation system to keep the electricity low, according to the listing.

Located off Myrtle Avenue where Fort Greene and Clinton Hill meet, the building is located near an abundance of restaurants, cafes, and bars. The nearest transit options include the G, C, and Q trains.
