Taking a stroll down Bed-Stuy’s beautiful, tree-lined blocks is a must for any architecture buff. Built between 1870 and 1900, the historic district is located north to Jefferson Avenue, east to Malcolm X Boulevard, and west to Tompkins Avenue. Make sure to stop by MacDonough Street, which has been a competitor in the annual Greenest Block in Brooklyn contest. In addition to being extremely pretty, each building has a rich cultural history and the neighborhoods are sure to make a nice walk.

Bed-Stuy is lively and colorful. It is know for its tree-lined brownstone streets. As with every neighborhood in our great city, use appropriate caution when navigating - especially alone and at night. Generally it is a friendly, albeit sometimes loud and raucous, neighborhood. We love it!!
