Kensington and Parkville


Kensington and Parkville is the area South of Prospect Park and the Greenwood Cemetery in central Brooklyn.

The neighborhood consists of a diverse mix of cultures and traditions. It is located west of Ditmars Park and Prospect Park South, south of Windsor Terrace, east of Borough Park, and north of Midwood.

The land now known as Kensington was first colonized by Dutch farmers in the 17th century and then re-settled by British colonists in 1737.

If you were to place this same apartment, with its numerous closets and large living spaces, in downtown Manhattan, you could expect to pay $3K per month for it. Park Slope? Maybe $2500.

AND... if you're willing to ride a few more subway stops - to either the Ditmas F Train or the Cortelyou Q Express Train - you will discover a developing neighborhood that's wonderfully diverse, a bit more residential, and a respite from the hectic, crowded streets of the more "prime" neighborhoods.

If you're not familiar with the Kensington/Ditmas Park section of Brooklyn, I strongly recommend you take the time to check it out! You will be glad you did!

According to the Not For Tourists web site, "Cortelyou Road, the main drag, has become something of the new Park Slope - - blending cosmopolitan eating and drinking establishments with a family-friendly, residential quality on the side streets. However, the neighborhood remains refreshingly diverse."
