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.learn more about this neighborhood

Clinton Hill one of the most sought-after neighborhoods to live in.
Yet Clinton Hill is on the upswing. The northern part of the neighborhood, anchored by Pratt Institute's 25 acres, is the site of a renaissance, with retail and residential developments reflecting the neighborhood's growing appeal. Pratt will soon break ground on a six-story building on Myrtle Avenue that will serve retail, admissions and academic purposes.
WHAT TO DO
The Society for Clinton Hill, which once led a house tour yearly, now does so every other year. (The next will take place in May 2013.) The Brooklyn Academy of Music's Afro-Punk music festival, which had its debut a few summers ago, will return to Clinton Hill this year. The area is known for churches like Queen of All Saints, a French Gothic structure on Vanderbilt Avenue. And the local branch of the Brooklyn Public Library is on Washington Avenue.
Fort Greene Park -- next door to Clinton Hill -- is beloved by many residents. And Brooklyn Flea, a new market showcasing local vendors, will start on April 6 and continue each Sunday at Bishop Loughlin Memorial High School, a block away in Fort Greene.
The C and G subways serve the area. Both stop on Washington Avenue; the G also stops at Classon Avenue.
Bus lines include the 54, along Myrtle Avenue, and the 52 along Greene Avenue. The 69 runs north-south along Vanderbilt Avenue, shuttling passengers to and from Prospect Park.
