Short streets, long on charm.

Bay Ridge is full of them.

The southwest Brooklyn shoreline neighborhood has picturesque single-block streets and privately owned cul-de-sacs, some of which are pedestrian pathways rather than roads for cars.

Stroll with us in search of these tucked-away treasures, which are sprinkled throughout Bay Ridge from Cannonball Park by the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge to Owl’s Head Park at the neighborhood’s north end.

News for those who live, work and play in Brooklyn and beyond

Did you know there’s a street in Bay Ridge that’s paved with red bricks?

That’s a rarity in this day and age.

It’s Bennett Court, a cul-de-sac that is tucked between Third and Fourth avenues and has its entrance on 72nd Street.

It is lined with a handful of charming, old-fashioned rowhouses.

* Parallel to Bennett Court, and very close by between Third and Fourth avenues, you find Ridge Court. It, too, is a cul-de-sac with charming rowhouses.

To give you an indication of what properties go for on these two tiny streets, 7107 Ridge Court sold for $860,000 in June, city Finance Department records indicate.

* A third Bay Ridge cul-de-sac with an entrance on 72nd Street is called 72nd Court. It can be found on the block between Shore Road and Narrows Avenue.

It is a serene corner of the neighborhood. Several rowhouses on 72nd Court’s odd-numbered side have porches with beautiful awnings.
