Street North-end South-end Length # of lanes Traffic direction Additional notes
West Street Avenue T Belt Parkway 1 South West Street is interrupted at the north end by the McDonald playground at Avenue T, as well as the bend in McDonald Avenue starting one block further north at Kings Highway. Norh of Kings Highway, the street was renamed Dahill Road in the 1920s, and is also interrupted at many points. Together, West and Dahill form boundaries for the old town of Flatbush, the East and West numbered streets, and the East numbered streets to the old Brooklyn street grid. While McDonald Avenue is usually recognized as the East/West border, it can be seen that West 1st Street is to the east of McDonald Avenue, and West 2 and West 3 are also east of the Shore Road continuation of McDonald.

East Streets[edit]

There are also streets which are designated as 'East X' Street. They run from East 1 Street to East 108 Street. These streets are oriented north-south and generally lie east of Dahill Road/West Street (Gravesend) which forms the western edge of the old town of Flatbush. Many of the "east" streets extend into Prospect Lefferts Gardens.[citation needed]

Other numbered streets[edit]

Bay Streets[edit]

There are 28 "Bay Streets" in Bath Beach numbered Bay 7th Street through Bay 50th Street. Every third street (Bay 9th Street, Bay 12th Street, etc.) is replaced by a numbered avenue. Most of them run between 86th Street and Belt Parkway.

Brighton Streets[edit]

West Brighton Avenue leads to Brighton Beach Avenue at the intersection of Ocean Parkway. After, the streets begin numerically, beginning at Brighton 1st Road, Brighton 1st Place, Brighton 2nd Street, Brighton 3rd Street, Brighton 4th Street, Brighton 5th Street, Brighton 6th Street, Brighton 7th Street before hitting Coney Island Avenue, which runs perpendicular.

Then, Brighton 8th Street, Brighton 8th Court, Brighton 10th Street (which has a small cul-de-sac of small side streets named Brighton 10th Court, Brighton 10th Path, Brighton Terrace, and Brighton 10th Lane), Brighton 11th Street, Brighton 12th Street, Brighton 13th Street, Brighton 14th Street, Brighton 15th Street, ending at Corbin Place, where Manhattan Beach begins. For some reason there is no Brighton 9th Street.

Flatlands Streets[edit]

There are 10 "Flatlands Streets" in eastern Canarsie. Unlike the Bay Streets, they alternate with the lettered Avenues (e.g. Flatlands 3rd Street is not replaced by Avenue K, etc.) Each street is one block long.

Fort Hamilton[edit]

The following streets are located inside the Fort Hamilton Army Base, and are presumably under its jurisdiction: General Lee Avenue, Schum Avenue, Walke Avenue, White Avenue, Stonewall Jackson Drive, Wainwright Drive, Washington Drive, Pershing Loop North/South, Sheridan Loop, and MacArthur Road.

Paerdegat Streets[edit]

There are 15 streets, numbered Paerdegat 1st Street through Paerdegat 15th Street, in Paerdegat, Brooklyn. They each run one block between Paerdegat Avenue North (East 76th Street) and East 80th Street.[1]

Plumb Streets[edit]

There are two streets, Plumb 1st Street and Plumb 2nd Street, in the Plumb Beach section of Brooklyn. These streets are both very short, with Plumb 1st Street being 3 blocks long and Plumb 2nd Street being 2 blocks long.
