Top 20 Bedford-Stuyvesant, New York vacation rentals & luxury serviced apartments
Bedford-Stuyvesant, popularly known as Bed-Stuy (sounds like Bed-Sty), is located in central Brooklyn and nudges up against ultra-hip Williamsburg. It's a neighbourhood that can feel quite different from one block to the next - pristine, historic brownstones on one leafy street and a less aesthetically-pleasing view on the next. It has always had a tight-knit community feel (lots of block parties in the summer months) and in the past decade the area has become a haven for artists and young families, attracted by the good value brownstone homes, although it's a bit rough around the edges in some areas. It's not the speediest transit to Manhattan - it depends on where exactly you are located in this large neighbourhood but it's a bit of a journey into Downtown Manhattan.
