Though previously considered part of the neighboring areas of Sheepshead Bay and Midwood, this residential area has now struck out on its own to stake claim on the Brooklyn borough. Its Spanish-style terrace homes and proximity to the highly-rated James Madison High School (of which the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader-Ginsberg as well as U.S. Senators Bernie Sanders and Chuck Schumer were graduates) may be a great option for families. All in all, if you’re not ready to leave the vicinity of a major metropolitan area but hear the siren song of suburban life, Madison may be just the right mix for you.

Our top Madison Moving Tips
This small Brooklyn spot is bounded by Kings Highway to the north and Avenue U to the south. East to west, the neighborhood spans the distance between Nostrand Avenue and Ocean Avenue. Nearby Brooklyn borough neighborhoods include Sheepshead Bay, Homecrest, Midwood, and Marine Park.
As a new resident of the area, you’ll certainly want to know more than just the geographical location. Here’s a few details we think might be useful to know:
- Nearby attractions. Though Madison is largely a residential neighborhood, that doesn’t mean there aren’t things to see and places to go close by. You’ll be so near to the coast, you’ll almost taste the salt of the ocean breeze in the air. Brighton Beach, also known as Little Odessa, is a short jaunt away. There, you can sample flavors favored by the large Russian and Eastern European immigrant population that call the laid-back neighborhood home. If you’d rather get into the hustle and bustle of it all, make your way towards Coney Island. The beach and boardwalk there is often full of folks who may be coming and going from Luna Park. It’s the home of the famous Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating contest on July 4th each year and many thrilling rides like the Cyclone roller coaster or the Wonder Wheel ferris wheel. If you’d rather commune with the wonders of nature, venture a bit further to the east to Marine Park. As the borough’s largest greenspace, it contains 530 acres of protected marsh and grassland. The park’s Salt Marsh Nature Center hosts many educational programs for visitors. There’s also a golf course, playgrounds, bocce ball courts, and more. You really won’t have to go too far from your homebase to find excitement!
- Getting around: Despite a number of major thoroughfares (looking at you Nostrand Avenue, Bedford Avenue, and Ocean Avenue), this part of the borough really doesn’t have its own MTA subway stop. The closest stop you might find is the Q subway train stop at Kings Highway or at the southern part of the neighborhood at Avenue U. There are a number of buses in the area, one of which runs along Nostrand Avenue that may help you get to a few other subway lines. At $2.75 per ride for a bus or subway trip, it may be worth it to you to make a few transfers on public transit to get to where you’re going. However, if you bring your personal vehicle with you during your move or plan to get one, you’re in luck. Plenty of streets in the area do not have alternate side parking that allows for the city to do periodic street cleaning. So, if you drive your own personal vehicle, you may have fewer headaches trying to find street parking. Though that might be the case, residential owners are still responsible for keeping the nearby sidewalk clear.
- Housing cost. Brooklyn is having its moment as a trendy place to live. That’s why you’ll see higher rents and home prices in the borough. However, housing costs are generally lower in this particular neighborhood. If you’re hoping to set down roots in Madison by buying a home, the average sale price for one was around $629k, which is much lower than what you might pay in downtown Manhattan or even in some of the more western Brooklyn neighborhoods. However, homes can range anywhere from $149K to $4 million. For those in the market for a rental, the average monthly rent in the neighborhood ($1,692 per month) is a fraction of what the typical Brooklyn average is ($3,194 per month). Either way you go, living in Madison means being an NYC resident without necessarily paying the same NYC prices!

From start to finish my move was a great experience. I immediately got a quote. The scheduling was easy, and they provided me with information regarding insurance coverage (and took care of the paperwork my building provided). The move itself went like clockwork. The movers arrived on time and texted me when they were on their way with an ETA to the delivery site. They moved everything up the 3 flights of stairs into my apartment quickly and safely. A great company that provides great service at very reasonable rates.
I was amazed how efficient the guys were. they sorted out my items to be removed and, went straight to work. We will definitely use A Piece of Cake multiple times in the future until, we officially make the BIG MOVE! THANKS FOR YOUR HELP....YES, IT WAS A PIECE OF CAKE! NO STRESS INVOLVED...JUST SWEET SERVINGS.....
Was very easy to call and set up a move. The price was good to. I had some mix-ups and needed to add items and even change the date, but they were able to easily accommodate. Day of the move the crew was super nice and professional. They quickly packed up the entire apartment with ease, I didn't really lift a finger. They made what is usually a stressful day pretty easy.
They came at zero hour after the moving company I initially hired and paid a deposit to canceled. I was freaking out about my move not happening at all but they did get this done and my stuff arrived more or less intact and accounted for. They handled changes and snafus gracefully and earned their money. Hopefully I won't be moving again for a long time but if I get forced into that again, I'll remember this experience.
They were awesome! They take everything apart and then re assemble for you.They wrap up your tvs and glass shit professionally. They take the legs off your couch so it fits through doors. Everything's wrapped until it's inside so it doesn't ruin the paint on your walls if they rub against them.Not even a wine glass was chipped.
Excellent moving company. I hired 2 men for 2 hours to complete 1 bedroom move. They arrived early, were extremely efficient, helpful, personable, strong, and careful. They finished the job with 45 min to spare. Everything went extremely smoothly. I would hire Piece of Cake again.
Nicholas and Giga made this moving experience an easy one, especially since I was moving alone. They were punctual, kind and very thoughtful. When we arrived to my apartment? They helped unwrap all the packing tape and set up my furniture and bed - something that would take probably days for me. They delivered excellent service and went beyond my expectations.
Jose and his team did a great job moving my husband and I. They arrived on time and were very organized. They were professional, courteous and moved us quickly. They wrapped our furniture very well. They took apart and put together our bed and sectional couch. We were very pleased and would recommend them.
Piece of Cake Moving was phenomenal to work with. From the initial sale, to the follow up, to the day of delivery. The moving crew themselves were a dream to work with. I honestly don't know how they managed to move everything we'd accumulated over the years in such a short (relatively) period of time. Will definitely use them again (in hopefully 7-8 years).
Great move with POC movers! I rented their pink bins which was an excellent choice, they provide plenty of packing paper, zip ties, and tags. My team arrived right at the start of their arrival window and quickly and safely packed all my bins and furniture into their truck. The team just as efficiently unloaded everything, leaving the bins in the labeled rooms and re assembling my bed frame. I definitely recommend renting their bins. I would definitely use Piece of Cake movers again and recommend them to a friend.
The movers were so professional, friendly and quick. They took such great care of my stuff. I happened to move on one of the hottest days of the year and felt so bad. They were gracious and so still worked quickly. Pls make sure you tip your movers good, they work hard and were really great!
I had made an appointment from another moving company that completely screwed me over the day of. I called every moving company in New York freaking out, and Piece of Cake was willing to come at 7pm to help me move, last minute. I genuinely don't know what I would have done if they didn't go out of their way to fit me in. Anytime in the future I will be using piece of cake moving! They boxed and unboxed so fast and efficiently, it was amazing!
