The Stable Brooklyn Community Group (formerly East Windsor Terrace Community Group) was formed in 2005 by residents concerned about unchecked high-rise development in the neighborhood surrounding Kensington Stables (the only remaining stables serving Prospect Park).
This website serves as a clearinghouse for information and a resource for concerned residents who want to make sure that their voices are heard. Please consider joining our very active email discussion list to stay up-to-date with local events. You may contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
East Windsor Terrace is a 7 block area of land bordered by Ocean Parkway, Coney Island Avenue and Caton Avenue. The area was severed from the rest of Windsor Terrace by the construction of the Fort Hamilton Parkway interchange of the Prospect Expressway (a Robert Moses era project). The area was also once home to many riding stables and riding academies. Over the years, their number has dwindled to just one—the Kensington Stables on the corner of E. 8th and Caton Place. The current R6 zoning of lots occupied by low-density, low-rise homes has made the area prey to developers and threatens the serenity and neighborliness of this somewhat quirky area.
