Study recommends creating a High Line-style park along Brooklyn’s Prospect Expressway

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.

Dubbed ‘the neighborhood’s most charming house’ by the Brooklyn Eagle, this Victorian asks $1.825M

This freestanding Victorian, built in 1860, was actually dubbed "the neighborhood's most charming house" by the Brooklyn Eagle newspaper. Located at 211 Vanderbilt Street, in Windsor Terrace, it is still clad with cedar clapboard and fronted by a covered porch. The fully detached home is also set back from the street, offering the rare front lawn, plus a side walkway that leads to a truly massive backyard. Although the interior has mostly been upgraded, it still holds a few historic surprises. It is plenty charming, but you'll have to judge for yourself if the home deserves the title of most charming in all of Windsor Terrace.

This Windsor Terrace townhouse reno by Barker Freeman was inspired by the owner’s love of books

Barker Freeman Design Office got creative with this townhouse renovation in Windsor Terrace, Brooklyn by taking the interior structural columns of the home and transforming them into bookshelves. The result was a win for architect Alexandra Barker's book-loving clients Gayle Forman, a prolific author of young-adult books, and Nick Tucker, her musician-librarian husband. Barker told Brownstoner that the shelving system is essentially a "low-cost design feature." And she noted, "They add visual interest using something most people already have." But that was only one element in an overhaul that modernized the main floor of this historic 20-foot-wide wood frame house.

This Park Slope Townhouse Is Just 12 Feet Wide!

This single-family home located on a street where Windsor Terrace meets Park Slope measures a very narrow twelve feet in width. However, a recent renovation of the skinny space by Redtop Architects makes up for the lack of stretching room with efficient planning and good design. Large windows and skylights are used to fill the home with natural light from all directions, in turn creating a sense of spaciousness that defies the structure's restricted width.
