Bedford-Stuvesant, better known by it’s shortened nickname of Bed-Stuy to most New Yorkers, has recently been making a name for itself as one of Brooklyn's most dynamic neighborhoods. Bed-Stuy has come a long way from its "Do or Die" days when Biggie called it home. Nowadays this largely residential neighborhood charms residents and visitors alike with its tree-lined streets and collection of over five hundred 19th century row-houses and brownstones, many of which are located in the Stuyvesant Heights Historic District. Bed-Stuy’s stunning architecture coupled with the areas attractive real estate prices has helped attract an influx of new residents and businesses, quickly revitalizing the neighborhood in the process. The neighborhood’s once rough and gritty streets are now home to dozens of hip cafes, trendy bars and restaurants, and some of the New York City’s best jazz clubs and lounges.
