NYC Honorary Street Names


Carole Schaffer’s Way (Brooklyn)
Present name:Midwood Street
Location:Between Flatbush Avenue and Bedford Avenue
Honoree: Carole Schaffer (d. 2014) served as a Lefferts Manor Executive Board Member for many years and as vice president for 12 years. The Lefferts Manor House Tour, now (2017) in its 46th year, was almost singlehandedly run by her, and the Executive Board of the Lefferts Manor Association was like her extended family. Her goal was to have a strong, vibrant and progressive organization. She was a community advocate working to better everything from sanitation to security measures. As a founding member of the Prospect Park East Network, she helped in the battle to force the developer of 626 Flatbush Avenue to reduce the height of the building to a level more acceptable to the neighborhood.
