Windsor Terrace Commerce & Culture
Windsor Terrace wasn’t called “Windsor Terrace” until a March 1854 news article advertising a building auction, at which point the neighborhood of 30 people spread over 12 houses began to grow. However, despite this expansion, it retains and attracts people with the feel of a small-town community beyond the big city. You can count on restaurants and bars to be local establishments serving superb food and drink. Many little charms and quirks await, like the last remaining stable near Prospect Park (Kensington Stables), a c.1896 Romanesque Revival firehouse complete with a lookout tower, and a two-story house randomly sandwiched between apartment buildings on Prospect Park SW. And while cemeteries might typically be considered a downside, Green-Wood is positively picturesque and historical; its gorgeous 478 acres serve as the final resting home of many significant personalities and a fitting locale to watch the sun set over Brooklyn.
