Midwood is a quiet, green neighborhood in Brooklyn that offers almost country-like living in the city. Homes for sale in Midwood include Victorians, Queen Annes, Colonial Revivals, frames, stuccos, and shingled two-story homes. Many of these larger homes for sale have amenities including deep and broad front porches, lawns adorned with large oaks and maples, peaked roofs, finished basements, driveways and lush gardens. The tree-lined streets also sport two-family homes and multi-family walk-ups. Midwood has many rental options as well, including apartments to rent in the aforementioned homes and brick rental buildings with units of all sizes, from studios to three-bedrooms.
Midwood’s commercial district is full of kosher restaurants, delis, pizzerias, butchers and other specialty stores, including a Russian bakery that makes mouth-watering butter cookies and fresh bread daily. Nearby Brooklyn College has a community membership program which allows neighbors to use its athletic and fine arts facilities as well as the library. Interestingly, the film industry has made Midwood its home for decades. For example, Vitigraph Studios opened in the 1920s and was later purchased by NBC in 1953; stars from Fatty Arbuckle to Perry Como lensed there. Today, Midwood natives like Woody Allen and Noah Baumbach have filmed some of their movies on the neighborhood streets. Plus, the soap opera “As the World Turns” recently moved its studios from Midtown to Midwood.
