History of Streets: The Albemarle-Kenmore Terraces in Flatbush

Albemarle Terrace

On January 10th, 1978, the New York Landmarks Preservation Commission held a public hearing where 27 people testified in favor of having both Albemarle and Kenmore Terrace become an historical district. The two small conjoining cul-de-sacs in Flatbush, Brooklyn are home to numerous homes constructed in both Colonial Revival and English Arts & Crafts Styles.
