Just a block away from the busy department stores, supermarkets, and fast food joints of Church Avenue in Brooklyn is a portal into the early 20th century and the birth of the automobile era.
Tucked behind the Flatbush Reformed Dutch Church—itself a landmark and the namesake of the street it’s on—the Albemarle-Kenmore Terraces Historic District is a set of bucolic cul-de-sacs lined with 32 houses in the Colonial Revival style (Albemarle) and the English Arts and Crafts style (Kenmore). The architects, Slee & Bryson, were inspired by the 1876 Centennial Celebration in Philadelphia to build something that invoked and honored the early years of the United States.
