For 125 years, Holy Name Church has stood sentinel over Windsor
Terrace, Brooklyn as the community has grown from a poor hillside
community dotted with farms and orchards, stables and small frame
houses to the thriving and desirable residential neighborhood of
16,000 we know today.
(Holy Name Church: 245 Prospect Park West)
This part of New York has a very long history. What is now
Windsor Terrace came into existence some 12,000 years ago, at the
end of the last ice age. During the Pleistocene era 1.5 million
years ago, a great iceberg called the Wisconsin ice sheet covered
all of New York City. During its formation, this ice sheet pushed
along rocks and boulders, forming a high ridge where it stopped
advancing. This ridge is called a terminal moraine, and it forms
the backbone of Long Island, as well as the high elevation of
Eastern Parkway and Park Slope--and Windsor Terrace--straight
through Bay Ridge and across the Narrows, where it rises to meet
its high point in Todt Hill, Staten Island. As it warmed up, the
iceberg retreated, gouging valleys into the earth; at the same
time, torrents of melting ice and dislodged rocks poured down its
sides, forming not just the slope but the expansive outwash plain
that stretches from 9th Avenue down and out to the ocean. Even the
clay-like soil of our neighborhood is attributable to this ancient
geological event. Simply walking through Green-wood Cemetery, with
its many hills and valleys, can show what the resulting terrain was
like before it was graded for farming and development.
Shortly after the ice sheet retreated, humans began arriving in
this region. These ancient people relied on hunting to feed
themselves and so may have been nomadic. Over the centuries, as the
region continued to warm, thick pine forests sprang up, and people
began settling throughout what is now New York City. These early
Americans, who were part of the larger Delaware tribe, called
themselves Lenape, meaning "people" in their language. The Lenape
were divided into many groups that were identified by the names for
the areas where they settled. Thus the original inhabitants of
Windsor Terrace were known as the Gowanus and Werpos
By the mid-1630s, Dutch farmers began settling in Brooklyn,
which they called New Netherland. The forests that studded the
outwash plain inspired the Dutch to call this area vlacke bos, or
wooded plain, and remained in parts of the area for centuries. In
fact, a last section of Brooklyn's original forest still stands in
Prospect Park, as does the Lefferts house, an old Dutch
Among the early arrivals was John Vanderbilt, who received a
land grant from the Dutch West Indies Company for most of the
property that would eventually become the lower, or southern part
of Windsor Terrace. Following his death, his huge estate was
divided among his heirs but it continued to be farmed by his
descendents for nearly two centuries. In addition to farmland,
sections of primeval forest remained between Seeley Street and 10th
Avenue well into the 1940s. The higher part of what we now call
Windsor Terrace was part of another large farm that was owned by
John and Peter Wyckoff and stretched from Vanderbilt's property
down to Gowanus Bay. In the course of the Battle of Long Island
during the Revolutionary War, Washington's Army crossed these
fields-maybe even passing through where your house is now!
(Battle of Long Island - Brooklyn, New York -- August 27,
The paths originally beaten by Native Americans were followed
and maintained by these European settlers. Old footpaths through
the valley were numbered from west to east. There was a First Woods
Road (still used and now known as McDonald Avenue), a Second Woods
Road (Prospect Avenue today) and a Third Woods Road (which became
the Coney Island Plank Road in 1849 and is now Coney Island Avenue,
blacktop having long ago replaced the wooden planks that kept it
usable in wet weather).
In the early part of the nineteenth century, the then-unnamed
hilly rural community seemed very far away from the rapidly
urbanizing island of Manhattan and its main suburb, Brooklyn
Heights. When Green-Wood Cemetery was commissioned in 1838 as
meditative green gardens, this undeveloped area, with its scenic
overlook of the harbor and the city, was deemed the perfect locale.
Within a few years-and especially after Governor DeWitt Clinton was
buried there in 1844-the cemetery became a popular destination not
only for burials but also for carriage rides and picnicking. The
city leaders of Brooklyn took note of this popularity and began
planning a city park to rival Green-Wood as an attraction. As a
result of all this tourist traffic and rumors of development, the
value of the surrounding farmland escalated dramatically and houses
began springing up along the only paved road, Prospect Park
Southwest, still known then as the Coney Island Plank
