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.

APPLICATION PENDING: Unique cathedral ceilinged 1 bed + large sleeping loft easily used as a 2nd bedroom. The apartment is on the 2nd floor of a 2 story building and has a great livingroom with 16' ceilings, a large skylight and fan, and great light and views facing straight West over the neighborhood houses. There is a galley kitchen at the entrance with good counter/cabinet space and white appliances with wood cabinets and a huge closet opposite the bedroom, which is about 9x8 with new floors and a closet/storage. Upstairs is a large sleep loft overlooking the livingroom - it has 6' ceilings at the center, but it does not have a door so it's not ideal if you need total privacy. The apartment is 2 blocks from the F/G at Church Avenue (Albemarle exit) and the local grocery store, 5 blocks to Brancaccio's and Steeplechase, and a 10 minute walk to Prospect Park. All utilities are included.

1 month fee, I have keys and can show any time. The pics are the exact apartment.
