Kensington

Surrounded by Windsor Terrace, Borough Park, and Flatbush, Kensington is a diverse, peaceful neighborhood. There’s a large Orthodox Jewish population, which has made its mark on the neighborhood with kosher eateries and religious buildings. That said, the majority of new people moving here are young professionals seeking a large, affordable apartment.

Fun Facts and History of Kensington

While Kensington was originally settled as part of The Town of Flatbush, the land wasn’t used for much. It wasn’t until 1737 that the area was properly settled by the British as farmland. Kensington would be used for agricultural purposes throughout the 1700’s and 1800’s.

It wasn’t until 1885 that Kensington was turned into a residential neighborhood. The Ocean Parkway, finished in 1880, helped make the area popular. Businesses started popping up next to it, as did apartment complexes. By the 1920’s, Kensington was full of people.

Kensington ran into some issues around the 1950’s and 60’s. However, many of these issues weren’t financial as much as they were about identity. For most of its history, Kensington was considered part of Flatbush. However, by the 1980’s the citizens of Kensington had made the neighborhood distinct enough to forge its own identity.

Kensington Buildings

While there are a few skyscrapers in this area, Kensington is full of row houses and mid-rise apartment complexes. There are also many religious institutions here, and those are largely flat as well.

Atmosphere of Kensington

Kensington is a residential neighborhood in every sense. It’s not quite suburban, but the people who live here are friendly and have a strong sense of community. Once you’re here, it’s easy to get sucked into the peaceful nature of the place.

Kensington has some great food, but the bar scene isn’t very strong here. This means that the neighborhood is pretty quiet by around 9 or 10, making it the perfect place for folks who want to live near the city, but also want to avoid tourists and parties.

Family Score for Kensington

Kensington is made up of strong communities with deep connections to their families. The crime rate is low, the schools here are great, and you're surrounded by other cultures. The lack of a night life also means that kids won’t be disturbed here. All in all, Kensington is a great place to raise a family.
