This playground and the nearby avenue are named for the Nostrand family. In the mid-1600s, many Dutch families settled in the townships that now constitute the Borough of Brooklyn. Due to the lack of standardized spelling and the transition from Dutch to English, the Nostrand family name took many forms throughout history including: Van Nostrand, Van Norstrand, Van Noordstrandt, Noostrand, Noorstrant, and Nostrandt. All are variations on the most commonly used modern form: Nostrand.
