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 otherwise 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.

  • Fan-Fan Doughnuts

    This shop comes from Fany Gerson of Dough and La New Yorkina fame, housed in the original Dough location. Her finger-licking doughnuts come in flavors like white coffee, Mexican cinnamon sugar, and sticky buns made from scraps.
