The Bedford Stuyvesant neighborhood contains an
astonishing number of architecturally, historically and culturally
significant structures, including rowhouses, mansions, religious
buildings, and schools dating from the 19th and early 20th centuries.
Although there are currently two designated historic districts in
the area, the vast majority of Bedford Stuyvesant’s architectural
splendor is unprotected. The recently-formed Bedford
Stuyvesant Society for Historic Preservation, a coalition of
concerned neighborhood block associations, and the landmarks committee
of Brooklyn Community
Board 3 are working to correct that.
