This compact single-family home at 636 17th Street in Windsor Terrace just a few blocks from Prospect Park may only have 1,600 square feet of interior space, but it offers so much more than an “equivalent” condo of similar size. With a fresh and stylish renovation, the two-story home, now asking $1,995,000, has three bedrooms, two living spaces, 1,100 square feet of landscaped outdoor space, and that rare urban bonus: a driveway and a garage.

As an alternative to a co-op or condo, this three-story townhouse at 550 20th Street in Brooklyn’s Windsor Terrace neighborhood, asking $1,368,000 has a lot going for it. First, a gated private parking space is a rare New York City convenience. A sun-dappled bluestone-paved garden with a covered patio is ready for summer entertaining. And a tranquil, laid-back style and a thoroughly livable layout make the most of the petite townhouse’s available interior space.

As of today, the MTA has added four express trains to the F line during morning and evening rush hours. Two F trains will run express between the Church Avenue and Jay Street-MetroTech stations, stopping only at Seventh Avenue, during the morning and evening rush hours. Additionally, two Manhattan-bound trains will run express from Church Avenue between 7 and 7:30 a.m. and two Coney Island-bound trains will run the express route between 5 and 5:40 p.m. Previously, as the Daily News reports, the F train’s route was the longest in the whole subway system without an express option.

A new study recommends building a cantilevered linear park to run along the Prospect Expressway in Brooklyn, akin to the High Line. Developed by students from NYU Wagner’s capstone program, PX Forward proposes ways to reimagine the 2.3-mile-long corridor, whose construction was led by Robert Moses between 1953 and 1962. As it stands today, the expressway cuts through neighborhoods like South Slope, Windsor Terrace, Greenwood Heights and Kensington, exposing residents to unsafe conditions due to high traffic and noise pollution.

With an elegant old-New York name to match the pre-war apartments within, the Algonquin at 175 Prospect Park SW occupies a fortunate spot across from the park in Windsor Terrace. This bright two-bedroom co-op offers the kind of sunset views and sunny mornings you get from being on the top floor, though unfortunately there’s no elevator to get there.

This laid-back little Windsor Terrace townhouse occupies a fortunate spot on a tree-lined block among similarly adorable Arts and Crafts-style homes, just on the edge of Prospect Park. The updated semi-attached, single-family home is no bargain at $2.468 million, but there are at least four bedrooms, plus more than enough space, modern comfort, and charm for the whole family. And while it may not be designer-perfect, it offers far more space than the average condo, and it’s the kind of place that looks like home.
