Welcome to the Neighborhood.

Frame 283 is situated in the idyllic Clinton Hill neighborhood of Brooklyn, just west of Bedford-Stuyvesant. A myriad of coffee shops, restaurants, and other community fixtures line the mostly residential streets. The neighborhood borders the newly renovated Brooklyn Navy Yard to the north, Prospect Heights to the south, and Fort Greene to the west.
