Midwood, close to Kensington is one of the most beautiful areas of Brooklyn. Like luxury rentals in Kensigton, Brooklyn, The Vitagraph celebrate the quintessential “old Brooklyn” neighborhood while bringing modern living back to the forefront. Paying homage to its historical grounds, the developers took pride in preserving the iconic smokestack – a distinctive tower and elegant salute to the early days of motion picture studios. There are also tons of attractions right on this Brooklyn luxury rentals doorstep, here are some of our favorites.

Prospect Park

The Vitagraph is situated just down the road from the parade grounds of Prospect Park, considered the “Central Park” of Brooklyn; a luxury rental apartment building on the cusp of Kensington. Designed and constructed over a thirty-year period (1865-1895) by Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux, the masterminds behind Central Park, Prospect Park has blossomed into a Premiere destination for Brooklyn visitors and residents alike; neighboring areas to Midwood such as Kensington, Flatbush, Park Slope and Prospect Heights are sought after for their proximity to Prospect Park. Well known for its intricate manmade wetlands and its trees, the bulk of Brooklyn’s remaining indigenous forest, the park is a highly functional green space contained within 526 acres. Park attractions are outside your door, including live music and concerts, shows, artwork for sale and of course plenty of picnicking spots just to chill.


On Sundays, make your way to Prospect Park and experience Smorgasburg, America’s largest open-air food market, considered the “Woodstock of Eating”. Since 2011, Smorgasburg has hosted more than 100 local vendors and served Brooklyn’s finest food to 20,000-30,000 people each week. This event is free to attend and is open every weekend, rain or shine. Many vendors also offer special menus for dietary restrictions, so everyone can enjoy! You can easily visit Kensington, Brooklyn from here.
