Hear “Bedford-Stuyvesant,” (or possibly just its nickname, “Bed-Stuy,”) and you’ll probably think: brownstones. The Stuyvesant Heights historic district of Macdonough, Bainbridge and Chauncey is landmarked — Lewis Avenue between Macdonough and Decatur was once named the “Greenest Block in Brooklyn” — but there are beautiful historic brownstones scattered throughout Bed-Stuy. Many of these coveted Bedford-Stuyvesant townhouses have their original fireplaces, crown moldings, and shutters. Often they are set up as two- or three-family houses, so that Bedford-Stuyvesant renters as well as buyers can enjoy their historical charm.
