Merry Christmas, Kensington Style

Posted on 11. Dec, 2009 by in International, Sandeep Junnarkar, Uncategorized, Urban

There’s more than one way to celebrate Christmas on Church Avenue in Kensington, Brooklyn. Business owners and residents of the neighborhood – one of Brooklyn’s most ethnically and culturally diverse – are getting ready to rejoice in their own ways, often by mashing traditions together.

Over a third of Kensington residents were born somewhere other than the U.S., according to 2008 Census estimates. Two out of 3 residents age 5 and up speak a language other than English at home. Polish, Hungarian, Russian, Italian, American and Arab ancestries are the area’s most common.
