Fodor's Expert Review Fruit Streets

Brooklyn Heights and Downtown Brooklyn Historical

The quiet blocks of Pineapple, Cranberry, and Orange Streets contain some of Brooklyn Heights's most picturesque brownstones and brick homes. A few homes made of wood still exist here, too, although new construction of this type has been banned in this area as a fire hazard since the mid-19th century. The wood-frame Federal-style house at 24 Middagh Street dates from the 1820s, its lane commemorating one Lady Middagh, whom we can thank for bestowing such memorable fruit-themed names on this enclave.
