Bedford-Stuyvesant, also known as BedStuy, is an iconic neighborhood in central Brooklyn. Its name comes from a combination of two neighborhoods within BedStuy’s borders: Bedford and Stuyvesant Heights. The neighborhood also contains two other sub-neighborhoods named Ocean Hill and Weeksville.
BedStuy’s boundaries are Classon Avenue to the west; Flushing Ave and Broadway to the north; Eastern Parkway to the east; and Atlantic Avenue to the south. The neighborhood is well-known for its beautiful brownstone architecture and historic buildings. In fact, the Stuyvesant Heights historic district has been a national landmark since 1975.
BedStuy is served by the A, C, G, J, M and Z trains, allowing for a fairly easy commute to Manhattan. Great transportation and relatively affordable prices have made BedStuy a popular choice for New Yorkers in recent years and it shows no sign of slowing down.
