Fancy an owner’s duplex in a brownstone for just one — or a couple? This enormous one-bedroom at 410 Jefferson Avenue in Bed Stuy might be just the ticket.
It’s got a well-stocked kitchen, a nicely landscaped backyard, two mantels and plenty of original wood work. The parlor floor has been opened up into one big space.
This three-story brownstone at 949 Greene Avenue in Bed Stuy needs work, but the potential is there. It measures 20 feet wide, and has some nice original details.
This oddball little home at 288 Chauncey Street is a top contender for Bed Stuy’s cutest house. With its shingled front, classic cornice and scrolled portico, it cuts a distinctive figure on this block, where it’s surrounded by newer brick homes that are set back a good 20 feet behind it.
This three-bedroom rental at 810 Jefferson Avenue in Stuyvesant Heights looks spacious and reasonably attractive, and with three exposures it gets a lot of light. It appears to be a decent deal as well — as a share, it’d cost under a grand a month per roommate.

For many people in Bedford Stuyvesant, home to Brooklyn’s largest African American community, Fulton Street’s Slave Theater is not just a building — it’s a metaphor.

That’s just why Judge John L. Phillips chose the name.
“You know what doesn’t make sense, hardly ever? Conversations about race,” WNYC producer Rebecca Carroll began Thursday’s panel conversation about segregation in New York City’s schools.
Preservationists and neighborhood residents are “overjoyed” and “thrilled” the Landmarks Preservation Commission finally approved the Bedford Historic District Tuesday, they told Brownstoner.
Long in the works, the district contains some of the neighborhood’s most significant architecture. Its preservation comes just as developers are transforming Bedford Stuyvesant with small and medium-size apartment buildings.
A three-story row house in Bed Stuy for $499,000? It’s true — but as the Facebook line about relationship status goes, it’s complicated.
Currently owned by a bank, the house is being sold as-is, with the buyer accepting liability for all liens and violations. And as you might guess, the house has a tangled history.
The new owners of Bed Stuy’s iconic Slave Theater filed permits on Wednesday to demolish the once-vibrant hub of civil rights activism.
Spurred into action at the prospect of demolition, 81-year-old Clarence Hardy — a former caretaker of the space who claims to be its rightful owner — climbed atop the Slave’s marquee on Friday and threatened to jump if the theater wasn’t saved.
