Families On the rise

Bedford-Stuyvesant, or Bed-Stuy as it’s often called, is in the north central part of Brooklyn.

It borders Williamsburg to the north at Flushing Avenue and Crown Heights to the south at Fulton Street, and spans from Classon Avenue to Broadway. One of Brooklyn’s oldest established neighborhoods, it can be a great alternative to the more expensive Brooklyn neighborhoods closer to Manhattan, with a charm all its own.
