Melbourne Place is a very short, one-block long street in Buffalo's Elmwood Village neighborhood. (Google Maps link)
Located off of Melboune Place, Mebourne Court is an unusual public "streetless street". The original plans for Melbourne Court called for a group of freeestanding cottages on small lots fronting on a common walkway, with garage and vehicle access in the rear. The walkway is public right-of-way.
Development of Melbourne Court started in 1928, a year before the Great Depression.
Only four of the 14 planned cottages were built. After World War II, a small apartment building was constructed on the unbuilt portion of Melbourne Court.
