My wife and I are moving from Las Vegas to New York in August. I was born in Harlem but have been away from NYC since 1988.
We want to rent a brownstone apartment in Stuyvesant Heights. A friend of ours owned a brownstone in the neighborhood and we thought it would be a nice area to live.
However, the information we get when we inquire about the area is 50-50. Half the people say it is a bad neighborhood and the other half say it is wonderful. Is Stuyvesant Heights a nice family area or is it an unsafe community better left alone? I hope to get responses to my question to help us decide what to do. Thank you.
