Ocean Parkway runs through the middle of the neighborhood from north to south and bisects it. 


Most of the community is residential with pre-war brick apartment buildings, five to six stories in height, brick and brownstone townhouses, and some single-family homes with yards. The subway services the neighborhood and has underground stops, however, it does run above ground and along an elevated section along McDonald Avenue. Elevated and underground sections do not impede pedestrians.
