Introducing Cityshares: Bedford-Stuvesant

Bedford-Stuyvesant, also known as Bed-Stuy, is a neighborhood in the northwest section of Brooklyn in New York City, home to ornate rows of brownstones and early middle-class apartments. Bedford-Stuyvesant is characterized by its wide, tree covered avenues, and low-scale residences: generally only church spires and school towers rise taller than four stories. We believe Bedford-Stuyvesant is one of NYC’s next great growth neighborhoods.
