I like Polhemus Place in Park Slope -- unusual name, and an unusual street (one of only a few "off grid" midblock streets in the gridded part of Brooklyn).

Also, I think Ditmas Park gets the award for largest concentration of regal sounding street names: Dorchester, Westminster, Marlborough, Rugby, Albemarie, Argyle, Beverley & Cortelyou! Love it.

There's a Buttrick Ave in the Bronx...it intersects at the corner of Harding Ave. That and Longwood Ave in the Bronx always make me giggle like an 8th grader.

So as long as you're in The Bronx, you shouldn't forget about Woodycrest Avenue, either.
