There is something in the air in Bedford-Stuyvesant that makes it a special place to visit and live. Is it the beautiful brownstone and limestone rowhouses and town houses? Is it the sitting parks like Fulton Park where people play chess? Is it the fine artists and entertainers that have lived here? Maybe, it’s just the great food cooked up at Peaches Hothouse, Do or Dine, or A & A Bake and Doubles. A walk around Bedford-Stuyvesant be a moving experience (oh yes, a pun).
