Kensington & Windsor Terrace

Past a traffic circle and down a commercial corridor lie the adjacent residential nabes of Windsor Terrace and Kensington, two of Brooklyn’s quietest communities. Just nine blocks wide, Windsor Terrace abounds in American flags, columned stoop-porch hybrids and off-grid or dead-end streets. Just south of Windsor Terrace, Prospect Park and Green-Wood Cemetery, the lesser-known Kensington sits — a place where pre-war brick co-ops rub shoulders with detached Victorians and American Foursquare homes. Peaceful, diverse and still relatively affordable, the area remains under the radar, though likely not for much longer.
