Living in Kensington
A traditional Brooklyn neighborhood, Kensington is nestled between Borough Park and Ditmas Park. The lush expanses of Prospect Park and tony boutiques of Park Slope are within easy reach from this primarily residential area. Stately brick row houses appeal to residents from all walks of life, and the central strip of Ocean Parkway is a bustling hive of activity. High-rise apartment buildings and independent shops line this broad boulevard, with landscaped malls, benches and chess tables marking its fringes. Kensington is slowly changing, attracting cafes, bakeries and bars in recent years as new residents move in. The F and G trains serve Kensington’s western edge, and the Q is close at hand.
