Stuck somewhere between Park Slope and Ditmas Park, then sandwiched under Prospect Park and above Green-Wood Cemetery, is a little community with not-so-little adventures to offer. Windsor Terrace, once a sleepy, blue-collar neighborhood, has experienced a kind of revival over the years, but has still managed to maintain many of its humble qualities from years past.
Easily accessible on the F and G subway lines, Windsor Terrace, though small, provides ample opportunity to stroll along quiet streets and through parks and gardens. In terms of food, the neighborhood has everything from rustic Italian fare (at spots like Della) to modern-minded Middle Eastern grub (at hideaways like Batata Pita Bar). Shops proffer finds from antiques to books and late-night outposts (like The Double Windsor) put a spotlight on local and international beers.
