This will be a stroll through the historic area of Bedford Stuyvesant, which contains some of the city's most beautiful townhouses and brownstones, magnificent churches, along one of New York's's oldest free African-American community. The neighborhood has been attracting people far and wide due to its beauty, affordability and developing food and nightlife scene. Over the years Bed Stuy has been home to musicians Eubie Blake, Lea Horne, Richie Havens, jazz drummer Max Roach and Congressmember Shirley Chisholm. Writers Isaac Asimov and Norman Mailer went to High School here as well as composer Aaron Copeland.
Our adventure will include a visit to the Hunterfly Road Historic District in the Weeksville part of the neighborhood with its unique wood frame houses. Options for brunch or lunch afterwards.
