Info

The Albemarle–Kenmore Terraces Historic District is a small historic district located in the Flatbush neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York City. It consists of two short cul-de-sacs, Albemerle Terrace and Kenmore Terrace, off of East 21st Street, and the 32 houses on the two streets.All the houses were designed by the local firm of Slee & Bryson, but differ in style between the two streets. The houses on Albermarle Terrace, built between 1916 and 1917, are Colonial Revival two and one-half- or three-story brick buildings located on courts and raised above street level behind terraces or front gardens. On Kenmore Terrace, three of the houses are also in the Colonial Revival style, one of which was built in 1918 and other two in 1919-20, but the remaining six on the south side of the street show the influence of the Garden city movement, and were designed in the English Arts and Crafts style. These Kenmore cottages were built in 1918-19, and presage the automobile-based look of many suburbs built in the decades to come, as each house has a driveway leading to a private garage.Also located on Kenmore, but not part of the historic district, is the parsonage of the Flatbush Reformed Dutch Church, a two and one-half-story wood-frame house designed in a vernacular style transitional between the Greek Revival and Italianate styles, which was built in 1853 and moved to its present location in 1918.
The historic district was designated by the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission in 1978, and was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1983.
