Curious to what Fort Greene and Clinton Hill was like in the 1940’s? A spectacular new website, 1940snewyork.com, offers us a glimpse. The website features an interactive map that allows you to zoom into Fort Greene and Clinton Hill , simply called Fort Greene Park at the time, to learn about rent prices and demographics. Also, the site has a few neighborhood pictures that worth checking out.
The site was developed by the Center for Urban Research at the CUNY Graduate Center, in collaboration with The Gotham Center for the New York History.
