Bedford-Stuyvesant is a neighborhood in the north central portion of Brooklyn with approximately 134,000 residents. The main north-south thoroughfare is Nostrand Avenue but the main shopping street is Fulton Street, which lies above the main subway line for the area.  Beginning in the 2000s, the neighborhood began to experience gentrification. The two significant reasons for this were the affordable housing stock consisting of brownstone rowhouses located on quiet tree-lined streets and the marked decrease of crime in the neighborhood.
