Midwood Brooklyn New York has always been a great place to live. The name Midwood derives from the Dutch word Midwout (middle woods) because of its thick, dense forests. The neighborhood is still well-known for it's thousands and thousands of shade trees. Midwood lies between the original Dutch town of Flatbush and English town of Gravesend. The neighborhood was discovered by would be residents at the beginning of the 20th century, right after the Brooklyn-Manhattan Transit line of the subway opened in 1908 and the Interborough Rapid Transit line was extended in 1920. From that point on the area became densely populated and heavily developed. Two new neighborhood subdivisions were created, East Midwood and Nottingham. They are still considered small neighborhoods within Midwood. Nottingham was founded by Joe Dorman, a New York City Fire Commissioner and remained mostly undeveloped even after 1921. The Nottingham area covered only nine square blocks then, from East 21st Street to East 29th Street between Avenues L and Avenue M, but as houses were built in the 1920's, the neighborhood boundaries stretched to include areas north and south. The Nottingham section of Midwood Brooklyn NY Real Estate is characterized by no large stores and few small ones.
