Windsor Terrace has become a much sought-after neighborhood for its small size and quiet residential streets. Proximity to Prospect Park also makes this area attractive to many, especially families with children. While there are a few brownstones here, Windsor Terrace is not usually thought of as “brownstone Brooklyn,” but rather as an appealing alternative. Brick and limestone row houses are what you’ll find instead, many with desirable features like front porches. Apartment buildings and detached houses are also available.
Windsor Terrace is located just south of Park Slope, and is bounded by Prospect Park Southwest to the east and 20th Street to the west. Prospect Park West marks its northern boundary, with Parkside Avenue at the south. The Pavilion Cinema and the beautifully landscaped Greenwood Cemetery are two major attractions. The neighborhood is quiet and residential for the most part, with Prospect Park West providing the majority of amenities like pharmacies, bookstores and markets.
Restaurants, cafes and bars have a homey feel, from Connecticut Muffin on Bartel Pritchard Square to Lonelyville Coffee on Prospect Park Southwest, which offers a scenic view of the lake in Prospect Park. The historic Farrell’s Bar, dating back to 1933, has retained its distinct, old-timey atmosphere, but newer bars have opened more recently along with boutiques, organic grocery stores, and a popular pie shop. Windsor Terrace is served by the F/G subway line.
