Those looking to rent in this neighborhood can expect to find their home on beautifully tree-lined, brownstone filled streets.

Fun Facts and History of Bedford-Stuyvesant

Bedford-Stuyvesant is actually made up of several micro-neighborhoods. One of them, Stuyvesant Heights, takes its name from the last Governor of the Dutch colony of New Amsterdam, Peter Stuyvesant. The other half of the name, Bedford, comes from one of the first major colonies in New Amsterdam. While Bedford was a major settlement, Stuyvesant Heights was largely farmland, and that was the relationship between the two settlements until after the Revolutionary War. In 1834, both settlements were incorporated into the town of Brooklyn.

Four years later, another micro-neighborhood was added to the area. Weeksville was founded in 1838 and was recognized as one of the first free black communities in the United States. The area still remained largely rural until the 1870’s when the famous row houses of Bed-Stuy were constructed. In 1890, as row houses were still being built, the last micro-neighborhood, Ocean Hill, was founded. Once trolly rails and train lines began reaching out there, Bed-Stuy became a popular place for working and middle class families.

Once the Great Depression hit, Bed-Stuy faced some hard times. Discriminatory policy and over policing lead the neighborhood into crime and poverty. Things didn’t begin to change until 1967 when Robert F. Kennedy ordered a study of the neighborhood and found that the city’s largest non-white community revieved little to no federal aid. This led to the creation of the Bedford Stuyvesant Restoration Corporation, America’s first community development program with a very catchy name.

Today, Bed-Stuy is a peaceful community that celebrates its history. Though its demographics are constantly in flux, the aesthetics of Bed-Stuy have remained constant for decades with several landmarks still in place, including the Alice and Agate Court Historic District. Bed-Stuy has also spawned many well-known actors, musicians and athletes.
