Between Prospect Park and Coney Island, lies the quaint, suburban neighborhood of Midwood. Although settlement was begun by the Dutch in 1652, it became much more developed in the 1920’s when middle class housing and apartment buildings were built.
Although Midwood’s home market consists mainly of one- and two-family homes, this nabe has many historical gems. Throughout its history, Midwood went through several periods of revival and upheaval. As a result, all of the classic homes from the 1920’s are surrounded by new, modern structures.
Midwood's shopping districts lay along its major avenues - Ocean Avenue, Coney Island Avenue, Nostrand Avenue, Avenue P, and Kings Highway. Having some of Brooklyn's busiest commercial districts within reach is one of the advantages of living in Midwood. Along with providing a great variety of shops, restaurants, and recreation, the avenues also serve as direct routes to the Belt Parkway and Downtown Brooklyn. The neighborhood’s closest large park is the 798-acre Marine Park in the adjacent namesake neighborhood. Within Midwood itself, the General G.W. Wingate Athletic Field offers over 5 acres of green space and sports equipment. South Midwood residents can also visit the William Kelly Memorial Park in neighboring Homecrest, and West Midwoodians enjoy the peace and quiet of Friends Field and the adjoining memorial Washington Cemetery. To the north, the Brooklyn College Campus, often called “the most beautiful campus in Brooklyn”, offers additional green space, recreational facilities, and community events. Whether drivers or riders, the residents of Midwood never lack for options when it comes to getting in and out. Commuters will appreciate Midwood's proximity to Ocean Parkway. With its multiple lanes and specially configured traffic signals for fewer stops, “the OP” offers a direct route to the Belt Parkway (Staten Island, Manhattan, rest of Long Island) and the Prospect Expressway (Brooklyn Downtown, Belt Parkway/Brooklyn Battery Tunnel). Subway service is provided by the Q (East 15th Street) and F (McDonald Avenue) trains, as well as the 2/5 line (Nostrand Avenue). The neighborhood is served by over 16 bus lines the Brooklyn local 2, 6, 8, 9, 11, 31, 41, 44, 49, 68, 82, 100, and B103; the Manhattan express X29; and the Queens-bound Q35.
