Directions via Google Maps
This small park which connects Columbia Heights to the Brooklyn Heights Promenade was named for of its proximity to Orange, Cranberry, and Pineapple Streets, which were in turn named by neighborhood resident Lady Middagh. Prior to her nomenclatures the streets were named for the aristocratic families of the neighborhood. She found this pretentious and so removed the street signs and put up those of her own fruity design. Eventually, the City made her choices official, but ironically, named a street after her own family, which remains today.
