One of the priceless features of Fiske Terrace is its tranquility. Tucked in between the old Long Island Railroad tracks and the BMT subway line, the neighborhood offers few through streets for vehicular traffic. Like most of the other areas of large, freestanding frame houses in Flatbush, Fiske Terrace was developed on heavily wooded land over a period of several years by a single builder – in this case by the T.B. Ackerson Company. Between 1905 and 1907, lots were designed, streets were paved, and the construction of custom-built detached, three-story suburban houses began.Other builders, such as C.F. Bond, built many of the the homes on East 18th and East 19th Streets. Back then, these huge homes sold for $12,000.
Beautiful trees and suburban landscape of a century ago combine to make Fiske Terrace an oasis within New York City. Over 1,000 street trees, more than 40 species, line its sidewalks. Hundreds of trees and flowering shrubs still grace carefully landscaped an well-maintained malls along Glenwood Road and East 17th Street.

The Fiske Terrace Association is one of the oldest and most active groups in Brooklyn dedicated to the preservation of the neighborhood. For information about the neighborhood today, please contact the Fiske Terrace Association President: Joel Berson, 718.434.0848
