Midwood Park, like other similar neighborhoods in Brooklyn, was built as a suburban development in the first decade of the century on what was formerly farmland. When the neighborhood was being developed, the names of “Midwood” and “Newkirk” were suggested for it, but “Midwood Park” – describing the park-like tranquility of its landscaped malls. On Foster Avenue, the ornamental columns grace the entrance of each block which are remnants of the once gated community.The Midwood Park Association, founded in 1908, and the neighboring Fiske Terrace Association (1907) are working with the NYC Landmark Commission toward historic district designation for both communities.Midwood Park is a vibrant and active community. In recent years, young families from brownstone Brooklyn and Manhattan have moved to the neighborhood and are enjoying the small-town atmosphere of the community that was present since its beginning.
