Brooklyn-Kensington Community Information

Originally colonized by Dutch famers, the area known today as the neighborhood of Kensington was first settled in 1737. Housing developments began popping up in the 1920, where it was common to find brownstone townhomes coexisting with single and multi-family homes, as well as five- and six-story apartment buildings and co-ops. Today, the neighborhood is known for its rich diversity, Victorian single-family homes standing side-by-side brick row houses and apartment buildings, and for its small-town feel.
