MIDWOOD PARK & FISKE TERRACE
MP: John Corbin, 1906–10

New York City Historic District
Midwood Park and Fiske Terrace are graced with beautiful landscaping, including medians along Glenwood Road and East 17th Street, and street name gateposts at the entrance to each block. One of Fiske Terrace’s highlights is the Avenue H subway station at East 19th Street (19a), an individual landmark which opened in 1878 as an excursion line to Brighton Beach as part of the city’s steam-powered rail system. The station was recently restored.
