Neighborhood Description

Midwood is located in the south-central section of Brooklyn, south of Flatbush and east of Ocean Parkway.

Though there are new condos are in development, the neighborhood primarily consists of Victorian houses on large plots of land. Several famous individuals including Woody Allen, Darren Aronofsky, and Arthur Miller were born and/or raised in Midwood. The shopping area on Kings Highway is a popular spot, as is Kolbert Park. Some noteworthy restaurants include Di Fara Pizza (once voted Best Pizza in NYC), Tacis Beyti, and Nagoya Sushi. Midwood is also renowned for Avenue M’s kosher restaurants and bakeries.

Once an area of dense woodland, its name is derived from the Dutch word “Midwout,” or “middle woods.” The area remained primarily rural and undeveloped until its annexation to the City of Brooklyn in the late 1800s. In the 1920s, large middle-class housing tracts and apartments were built. Historically, Midwood has played an important role in film and television production. In 1907, the Vitagraph company occupied a studio at Avenue M and East Fourteenth Street. In the 1920s, Warner Brothers purchased the studio and used it for short subjects before vacating the lot for Hollywood. The building is now home to the Shulamith Yeshiva School for Girls, but a large smokestack bearing the name Vitagraph is still on the property, as are two brick walls from the original studio. Even after Midwood’s brief cinema heyday, it remained a popular film and television location and can be seen in films like The Godfather and in television shows like The Cosby Show.

In the 1970s, many Midwood residents moved to the suburbs, but by 1980, new residents from all over the world began pouring in. Today, Midwood’s population is around 51, 413, and the area remains primarily Jewish. Residentially, Midwood contains many single-family homes as well as taller apartment buildings near major streets.

Subway transportation to Midwood includes the B and Q trains to Avenue H, Avenue J, Avenue M, and Kings Highway; the F train at Avenue I, Bay Parkway, Avenue N, Avenue P, Kings Highway; and the 2 and 5 trains at Flatbush Avenue – Brooklyn College. Bus routes serving the community include the local B2, B6, B7, B9, B11, B31, B41, B44, B49, B68, B82, B100, and B103, and the BM2, BM3, and BM4 express buses.
