H.P. Lovecraft's Brooklyn Heights Home

Historical Site

Novelist H.P. Lovecraft moved to the first-floor apartment at 169 Clinton Street in 1925 after separating from his wife Sonia Greene. He described the place as "something unwholesome—something furtive—something vast lying subterrenely [sic] in obnoxious slumber—that was the soul of 169 Clinton Street at the edge of Red Hook, and in my great northwest corner room." Although he disliked living in Brooklyn, Lovecraft did claim his imagination was never so alive as when he lived on Clinton Street.
