Albemarle and Kenmore Terraces are two quiet residential courts, less than a block in length off East 21st Street. These small peaceful mews were built on land owned by the Flatbush Dutch Reformed Church, and Teunis Bergen, an early settler in Flatbush, and were undeveloped until 1916.Albemarle Terrace has charming, Neo-Federal brick and limestone houses on either side of the street, raised above street level and set back behind small gardens. There are two distinctive styles to these houses, which form a symmetrical pattern, yet retain minor variations that make them individual.Three red-brick houses fronting East 21st Street are more functional, less ornamental and more in keeping with the contemporary row of houses which were constructed later on Kenmore Terrace.
