Bed-Stuy/Ocean Hill at a Glance
Bedford-Stuyvesant, also known as “Bed-Stuy,” is a central Brooklyn neighborhood that borders Clinton Hill, Crown Heights, Bushwick, and Williamsburg. The neighborhood is known for its historic brownstones, residential streets, and reputation as the cultural center for African American Brooklynites.

Despite these changes to demographics, Bed-Stuy is thriving with renovated bars, restaurants, cafes and other retail spaces. The neighborhood is serviced by the G, A, C, J, M, and Z trains, as well as several bus routes. Many celebrities came from Bed-Stuy as well, including Jay Z, The Notorious B.I.G, Mos Def, Jackie Robinson, Chris Rock, and Tracy Morgan.
