Neighborhood Description

With its sweet suburban streets and family friendly vibe, Brooklyn’s Windsor Terrace can be described as the less precious cousin of nearby Park Slope.

And while the commute to Manhattan is slightly longer than that from Park Slope, recent additions of stylish restaurants and spruced up local parks have spawned a renewed local interest in the area.

If the picturesque tree-lined streets and endless variations of brick, single-family homes have made Windsor Terrace a coveted destination for families, then the vibe of the community has followed suite. There’s a distinct culture of neighborliness here, with residents looking out for one another day in and day out. Despite the area’s growing popularity, few major commercial zones have opened up in the area, contributing to its secluded, residential feel.

In addition to its proximity to the famous Green-Wood Cemetery, Windsor Terrace is home to the Kensington Stables, which goes back to 1930 and is one of only two remaining stables in Brooklyn. Nearby ballpark fields in Prospect Park and scenic lakeside drives provide additional recreation. The neighborhood has been referenced in countless plays, books, and movies, including “Dog Day Afternoon,” “Pollock,” and “As Good as it Gets.”

Originally built by William Bell in 1851, the neighborhood was named after Windsor, England. It didn’t become heavily populated until 1900, however, and between 1902-1919, 700 homes were built and sold in the area. Immigrants of primarily Irish descent originally settled the area’s brick row houses and wood frame houses, and to this day members of Irish families that have inhabited the area for decades still live in the neighborhood. In the mid 1980s families from Park Slope and other Brownstone areas began trickling in, and there continues to be an ever-growing accumulation of young families joining the community to this day.

Sandwiched on half a square mile between two sprawling green spaces— Green-Wood Cemetery and Prospect Park—Windsor Terrace is bordered by Catton Avenue to the south and 8th Avenue to the north.

Windsor Terrace has two subway stations, both on the F line, with one at the north end of the neighborhood at 15th Street and the other at Fort Hamilton Parkway to the south. The ride into Midtown Manhattan usually takes 35 to 40 minutes.
