Bed Stuy Real Estate

A quintessential Brooklyn neighborhood with a small-town feel  
 
Bedford-Stuyvesant, better known as Bed Stuy, is a beautiful and historic neighborhood full of exquisite brownstones on tree-lined streets. The neighborhood is located in northern Brooklyn and is bordered by several neighborhoods, including Clinton Hill to the west, Crown Heights to the south, Williamsburg to the north, and Bushwick to the east.   The subways are the A/C trains to the south, G train & JMZ trains on the north.
 
The history and charm of this central Brooklyn neighborhood have been well preserved. Bed Stuy is home to nearly 9,000 buildings that were built before 1900, and most have remained largely unchanged. The neighborhood is filled with historic, beautiful homes and the country's largest collection of gorgeous Victorian architecture, but you'll also find luxury condos, high-end townhouses, and newly built upscale apartments here.  

What to Love

  • Thriving cultural scene  
  • Beautiful architecture  
  • Unique small-town feel  
  • Walkable neighborhood  

Local Lifestyle

Despite being one of the largest neighborhoods in Brooklyn, Bed Stuy has a slow-paced, small-town vibe and a wonderful tight-knit community. It's a culturally-vibrant neighborhood with lots of amenities, and block parties in the summertime bring the community together.  

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping

Shopping in Bed Stuy is quite interesting, as you will come across several beautiful stores, vintage shops, and locally-made items. Visit Harold and Maude for vintage clothing and Peace & RIOT for unique and beautifully understated jewelry pieces, a well-curated collection of vintage clothing, and a wide-ranging selection of home goods, including handwoven baskets, beautiful kitchenware, and small furniture.  
 
The charming Installation Brooklyn Vintage has an eclectic selection of vintage wares that range from streetwear and ethnic styles to mid-century home goods and vintage couture. Check out  NAF Deli Grocery for organic groceries, or visit Hattie Carthan’s community garden for locally grown food.   
 
Once you've worked up an appetite, stop by David's Brisket House for some of the best sandwiches in the city, specifically brisket, corned beef, and pastrami. Pilar Cuban Eatery is the perfect spot for Cuban sandwiches and sides. If you're looking for the perfect coffee date spot with some seriously good food, check out Golda or Stonefruit Espresso + Kitchen.  
 
Head to Natural Blend for vegan bites and organic juices, or Saraghina Caffè for artisanal pizza so good there’s always a steady stream of guests coming in and out of the eatery. Indulge in Korean cuisine at Taste Korea 232, or Japanese fare at WARUDE, which has extensive bowl options, including salmon miso, teriyaki chicken, and tofu zucchini.   
 
If you're in the mood for casual Southern comfort food, stop by Peaches HotHouse and grab a bite of shrimp and grits, po'boys, and unforgettable fried chicken. For French cuisine, L'Antagoniste serves high-end, traditional dishes with an excellent selection of new and old-world wines. It's one of the best dinner and brunch spots in the neighborhood, perfect for a date night or an outing with friends. 
 
When it comes to nightlife, the Bed Stuy neighborhood has a nice mix of low-key jazz bars as well as vibrant nightclubs. Stop by LunÀtico, and check out its nightly roster of talented performers—from gypsy jazz to desert blues—while sipping classic cocktails in their backyard venue. Head to Tilly's for Caribbean tunes and delectable bites, BrownstoneJAZZ for an intimate jam session, and C'mon Everybody for cocktails, live music, and art shows.  

Things to Do

Spend the afternoon at Fulton Park picnicking, reading, or playing with your furry friend. The park also hosts several neighborhood festivals throughout the year and is home to an annual art fair in the summer and a beloved Halloween parade. Herbert Von King Park is the best place to chill with friends. This park has baseball and soccer fields, a track, a pool, an amphitheater, and a dog run.   
 
For art lovers, check out the Bedford-Stuyvesant Museum of African Art, a non-profit museum that features a collection of artworks from 40 different African countries. You can also visit Richard Beavers Gallery and The Bishop for incredible art displays, catch a show at Restoration Plaza or attend one of the many block parties in the neighborhood.
