Kensington

Just south of Prospect Park and often dubbed Kensington's very own backyard, this community is framed by the Fort Hamilton Parkway and Caton Avenue to the north, Coney Island Avenue on the east, Foster Avenue on the south and McDonald Avenue on the west.

Developed in 1885, after the completion of Ocean Parkway (designed by Frederick Law Olmstead), Kensington was named after the west borough of London.

Full enjoyment is at hand in the 526-acre Prospect Park (Brooklyn's answer to Manhattan's Central Park). Attractions include the Wollman Rink, the Oriental Pavilion's formal gardens, fishing for striped bass on Prospect Park Lake and so much more. The Kensington Stables are also nearby. Check out Church Avenue for shopping and dining.

Housing Stock: Detached and semi-detached wood-frame Victorian homes, lime or brick row houses, large homes with basements, large porches and private garages and rental, co-op and condo apartment buildings.
