Park Street, which falls between Fourth and Fifth Streets, has kept its original name. Maple Street, at the west edge of the neighborhood has also kept its original name. Summit Drive connects Upper Brooklyn with Lower Brooklyn by connecting Fourth Street SW at Avenue A with Third Street SW at Seventh Ave SW. Brooklyn Alley is the only alley in the neighborhood and runs between Park Street and Fifth Street from Sixth Avenue to Eleventh Avenue.
