Bedford-Stuyvesant, BROOKLYN, NEW YORK
Purchased in the 1660’s by Dutch settlers from the Canarsie tribe (the purchase price was three tons of beer and three long-barrel guns), Bedford-Stuyvesant has made its name for its rich past, culturally diverse present, and ever progressing future. A beneficiary of the rapid growth in New York City’s public transportation system throughout the twentieth century, “Bed-Stuy”, as its 157,000 residents affectionately call it, appealed to those seeking a sense of calm from an increasingly hectic and overcrowded Manhattan. With the help of community development programs set forth by Robert F. Kennedy, Bed-Stuy has recently transformed itself into one of New York City’s most robust neighborhoods; consequently, real estate values have tripled in recent years. The neighborhood is famous for a large collection of brownstones and townhouses that are great investment for those starting a family. Tree-lined streets and available parking is a pleasure to some while the convenience of the A, C, G, J, M, L, and Z lines allow easy and unfettered access across Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens and the Bronx. Quirky shops and cafes have sprung up along Malcolm X Boulevard and the Brooklyn Children’s Museum is a great destination for weekend family fun. Dynaco on Bedford Avenue brings not only an old-fashioned flare to this neighborhood, but also cocktails galore and One Last Shag (formerly known as Sweet Revenge) gives Bed-Stuy a funky feel of excitement through a full bar and cozy seating while you sip. It’s home to seven public schools and served by the Long Island Rail Road at Nostrand Ave and East New York stations.
