Located in the southeast corner of the Borough Park area, Mapleton has, in recent years, been reclaiming its own
identity as residents celebrate its early twentieth century brick row houses and classic homes with large yards, some
of which bloom with the handsome trees that give Mapleton its name. Special features to look for in Mapleton houses
are those that tend to appeal to suburban habitués, such as finished basements, large porches, and oversized lots.
Rentals here often sport historic detail including parquet floors, panel moldings, and sunny layouts common to early
20th-century buildings. The Mapleton neighborhood includes some recently-constructed condominiums as well,
offering large windows, open kitchens, washer-dryers, and often tax abatements, all on quiet blocks.
For recreation, take a trip on your bicycle to Maple Lanes, a glow-in-the-dark bowling alley, or to the nearby championship
Dyker Beach golf course. Nearby Gravesend Park is the beneficiary of a recent multi-million-dollar renovation, with
new garden areas, added playground equipment, reseeded ball fields, and a scattering of café tables and chairs.
