3. Parkside Court
Tucked off of Parkside Avenue is Parkside Court, which stands apart from the other dead end streets in this area in that it is a private street. A few steps into the street reveals a sign warning the pedestrian of entering a private street and prohibiting unauthorized vehicles. Lined with row houses and brick buildings, the street becomes obscured further down, shrouded with trees. Like Beekman Place and Chester Court, Parkside Court is a dead end street in order to accommodate the B and Q subway lines that run above ground. Each townhouse has a well-sized backyard and in the past few years, many houses have been renovated.
As a Brooklyn blogger noted, Parkside Court maintains a mysterious quality, one that makes its quiet street stand out in comparison to the densely-populated neighborhood, including the bustling Flatbush Avenue a block away.
