One of the greenest neighborhoods in Brooklyn, Windsor Terrace is nestled between Prospect Park and Greenwood Cemetery. This up-and-coming neighborhood has become a hotspot for affordable houses and apartments to buy and affordable apartments to rent (especially compared to nearby Park Slope). Properties in Windsor Terrace include townhouses, luxury condos and apartments.
More In addition to a diverse population and diverse housing stock, Windsor Terrace offers peaceful tree-lined residential streets. As you walk down these streets, you pass two-story and three-story row houses of brick, clapboard, brownstone and limestone. These row houses, architecture fans will find, still retain touches of their original details. If you go further south in Windsor Terrace, you find detached frame and detached brick houses for sale, as well as a handful of mid-rise apartment buildings. Also in the southern part of Windsor Terrace, recent new developments have brought in over 100 new luxury condos to buy and new condos to rent; they include such amenities as indoor parking. The Windsor Terrace area also offers quaint coffee shops, restaurants, organic grocery stores and boutiques. Recent commercial developments which have helped give Windsor Terrace a more upscale feel include DUB Pies, an Australian style meat and vegetarian pie shop. A handful of new bars have also opened up. If you want a more casual night out in Windsor Terrace, grab a beer at historic Farrell’s Bar, established in 1933 (which you might recognize from the film “As Good As It Gets”) where they only serve brews in 32-ounce Styrofoam cups, and then catch a movie at Pavilion Cinema, a long stalwart of Kensington, where films are shown in digital format.

Small town vibe
My favorite hood in Brooklyn and my home for the last 10 years. It's kind of like Cheers without the alcohol. Everybody knows your name. The streets are tree-lined & most of the noise you hear comes from kids playing and birds chirping.
