Bedford Stuyvesant

Neighborhood Image

Bed-Stuy is a neighborhood rich in culture, pride and history.


Bed-Stuy has always offered some of the finest stock of brownstones. As such, the neighborhood appeals to New York families, historically black families. Many black families have ties to the neighborhood dating back to the 1920s and '30s when they moved from Harlem in search of more space, quieter streets and a community they could call their own. Recently, the neighborhood has seen substantial change as young professionals and artists are moving in and new restaurants, bars and businesses crop up to cater to them.
