This lovely little neighborhood of Brooklyn was originally part of the estate of wealthy Brooklyn agricultural baron and landowner James Lefferts. During the Brooklyn housing boom of the 1890s, he developed the area into a pastoral alternative to the hustle and bustle of Brooklyn Heights and Park Slope. At the same time Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux, the brilliant naturalists and landscape designers of Manhattan's Central Park, were just completing their work on Prospect Park and the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens, gracing Brooklyn with their artful touch.
Today, the tree-lined neighborhood is cherished for its beautifully preserved, museum-quality brownstone, limestone and many Italianate brickwork townhouses. The tranquility is due in part to the original one-family zoning that James Lefferts insisted upon, which has been in place since the turn-of-the-century, and has kept our historic Brooklyn townhouses from being converted into multiple-family dwellings.
James Lefferts wanted a stable, upper-middle class enclave of fine housing stock, where families moved in and stayed, and his plan seems to have worked well.
