Living in Bedford-Stuyvesant
Bedford-Stuyvesant’s coolness credentials are impeccable. Pronounced bed-sty (rhymes with “my”), New York City’s famous Brooklyn neighborhood featured in lyrics to Billy Joel’s “You May Be Right”, was practically its own character in Spike Lee’s film, Do the Right Thing, and was a source of inspiration for comedian Chris Rock’s television show, Everybody Hates Chris. Living in Bedford-Stuyvesant means inheriting, embracing, and celebrating a rich architectural and social legacy.
