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.

By the 1840s, Clinton Hill had become a fashionable neighborhood for the wealthy of Brooklyn, who could commute to Manhattan by way of stagecoach to the Fulton Ferry in nearby Brooklyn Heights. Due in part to the presence of Pratt Institute the neighborhood boasts an increasing arts community. I have apartments available in the neighborhood and would love to help you out.
