Clinton Hill by Carey Kirkella in Brooklyn, New York, USA

Name:Carey Kirkella

Place you live:  Clinton Hill, Brooklyn (for 15 years until 1 week ago when I moved to Bedford Stuyvesant, Brooklyn)

Place your photo was taken: Clinton Hill, Brooklyn, NYC

Occupation:  freelance photographer

Preoccupation: I’m generally just preoccupied with daily life in Brooklyn.

A perfect day?  Wandering around and discovering hidden stores, restaurants and interesting people.

A perfect meal?  The Santa Fe burrito at Castros on Myrtle Ave.

A little known fact?  I’m not sure if it’s very little known or not, but it’s interesting that Clinton Hill/Fort Greene was part of the underground railroad.  I think that the street that I lived on (Washington Ave) was very involved in it.
