School snaps up five-story Clinton Hill brownstone

January 12, 2010 12:29PM

The Brooklyn Free School has announced its purchase of a five-story brownstone at 372 Clinton Avenue between Green and Lafayette avenues in Clinton Hill, Brownstoner reported. While it’s not yet clear what the closing price on the 25-foot-wide building was, the most recent asking price was around $2 million. Before attracting the school’s attention, the 7,000-square-foot building had languished on the market since the middle of 2006. “We are extremely excited about the prospect of moving to a building of our own,” school representatives said on the Brooklyn Free School Web site. The school plans to renovate the building before moving in over the coming months. It is currently based at 120 16th Street in Park Slope. TRD
