"Great residential street"

Clermont Avenue in Brooklyn, NY is a nice residential street in the historic Fort Greene area. There are many beautiful old brownstones, along with some newer apartment buildings. There is a French church on the corner of Clermont Ave and Willoughby St. Clermont Ave also has my very favorite Middle Eastern restaurant - Black Iris, on the corner of Clermont and DeKalb Ave. There is also a public pool that is open in the summer.

"Nice long blocks"

Quiet, historic street filled with brownstones and school and concert halls. There is even a rumored celebrity who lives here (hint:"Entourage" star).There is a some restaurants that are on this street which are pretty good. There is even a pool which is for the children and is attached to a park and elementary school.
