Midwood Brooklyn Haredi (Red Brick)


Sundays have been getting me out to to the Midwood neighborhood in Brooklyn. The place is full of big box yeshivas and little, pocket betei-midrash. I like the low-rise and red-brick work. Far away from Manhattan, the vibe’s very urban in a strange sort of way. Maybe it feels a little like Los Angeles, but Haredi. Residential houses surround long major commercial strips like Coney Island Avenue. I should have taken more pictures. About Midwood, you can read a little from a couple years back here in the NYT real estate section.
