NEIGHBORHOOD GUIDE

Midwood

A quiet residential hub where you’ll find incredible pizza on an unassuming block.


This central Brooklyn neighborhood, just off the busy thoroughfare of Coney Island Avenue, is made up of well-kept, freestanding homes with private driveways and yards. Yeshivas and synagogues blend into the residential streets of this predominantly Jewish neighborhood. Midwood boasts a few quiet commercial streets, and some of the best pizza in New York City. People travel far and wide to eat at Di Faras, an world-famous hole-in-the-wall pizza joint, where the wait can stretch on for hours. Photo courtesy of Iorna via Flickr.
