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 that serve top-notch food and drink. Many little charms and quirks await, like the last remaining stable near Prospect Park (Kensington Stables), the c.1896 Romanesque Revival firehouse complete with 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.
