"The Best of Both Worlds"

This is the perfect location in all of NYC. With Seward Park just a stone's throw away (at least for NYC), you get the best of both worlds - greenery and shopping! There are so many wonderful shops nearby. The Williamsburg Bridge's lights are remarkable to watch at night. If you're up for a short walk (at least for NYC), Chinatown is filled with great restaurants and shops.

"Call it home.."

Clinton Street makes residential and commercial space meet in an interesting way. One side houses many residential buildings while the other becomes more commercial and retail-oriented. The bakery on the street offers amazing baked goods for all who walk past it and the smell from outside is amazing. Several restaurants on the street also have some bragging to do so it's a great place to live for someone who likes the mix of residential and commercial space on the same block, personally I do.

"Clinton Street is Alright"

This is a thoroughfare is not as jam packed with things to do and places to go. You should try WD 50 for some interesting takes on traditional American cuisine or the Clinton Street Baking company for something really special (they have great cookies). I really enjoy this part of the city and think that anyone would. It's well accessible and the housing options are plentiful. All in all, a good place to live, work, eat, or shop!

"Quiet, Hipster Central"

Clinton Street is a great street and area to live in if you're looking to get the best of the Lower East Side. There are so many great bars and restaurants in the area; it's hard to get enough of it all. Some may call it hipster-central, but overall it's loads of fun. The area is lively, but not overly noisy. So it's great for someone who wants to be a part of the lively social life outside.

"Clinton Street Is FILLED!"

Clinton Street is chalked full of places to go! WD50 is a good place to go for upscale dining and a truly unique dining experience. You also have Clinton Street Baking Company, 1492 Restaurant, the Cocoa Bar, Frankie's, Alias Restaurant, and finally Falai's. If planning a date in the near future, I suggest this street. Tell your mate to choose and his or her pallet can determine the fate of your relationship! Either that, or you'll get a free meal!
Clinton St is close to the following metro stations: 6 at Spring Street, F, J, M, Z at Essex St- Delancey St, and the J, M, Z at Bowery. It is also accessible to many buses. Foot traffic is moderate, and it is a good neighborhood for all people!

"The Lights Are Bright on Broadway"

East Broadway and the Manhattan Bridge is a wonderful place to walk in the city. I found several restaurants along my walk and also a wonderful view of the bridge. At night, the lights glow overlooking Brooklyn, and is a really terrific spot for reflection. At the heart of the Lower East Side, East Broadway is easily accessed by metro and buses, and is nearby to many streets with more activity. I found the architecture of the residential building to be quite beautiful and the neighborhood serene. Take a visit to Seward Park for a picnic with a loved one. This is really one of my favorite streets in New York City.

"North end looks nice to live at"

At the north end of the road, Clinton St looks like a nice place, it’s leafy and has quite tasteful salmon pink facades. Walking south it becomes a highly commercial area, every building is a shop, some good shopping to be found here but you wouldn’t want to live here.

"Well it's probably better then living on Ludlow"

The thing I didn't realize about Clinton st before I moved there was that all the big trucks coming into Manhattan early in the morning from Brooklyn use it as a short cut from the Williamsburg bridge to Houston over to FDR. From 4am - 6am in sounds like a heard of elephants. There are tons of great bars and restaurants on Clinton st but from 2am - 4am you get people screaming and being stupid. If you are a really heavy sleeper or work nights Clinton St is probably fine. If not I would live on Suffolk or Norflok.

AdamS This is fantastic advice about the Trucks early in the morning Spraycode. It's invaluable information like this that is making StreetAdvisor such a great resource for buyers of new homes.
