Midwood is more steeped in tradition than most of Brooklyn and perhaps that’s because Hipsters haven’t found their way to this quiet, south-central Brooklyn neighborhood where the cafes serve cream-filled pastries dusted with powdered sugar, not single-origin, organic coffee. The area takes pride in being mostly residential. The streets are tree-lined and basketball hoops hang above garages. Because Midwood doesn’t fall under any landmarks or historic zoning, the architecture varies drastically. Within Midwood, there is Midwood Manor, an area with some of the most beautiful and lavish houses in all of Brooklyn. Coney Island Avenue is Midwood’s main artery and is lined with everything from gas stations to department stores. Hot Spots include: Di Fara Pizza, Ostrovitsky’s, Taste of Georgia, and Taci’s Beyti.
