Clinton Street

Most of the north-south streets around here curve to align with the street grid of the rest of Manhattan - with another slight turn at Houston Street. This is Clinton Street between East Broadway and Grand Street. Clinton Street is named for George Clinton, general in the Revolutionary War, governor of New York from 1777-1798 and U.S. vice president from 1804-1812. George was DeWitt Clinton's uncle.
