Welcome to the New York Architecture Diary, your essential guide to architecture exhibitions and events taking place across the city.
Every neighborhood has at least one street that defines it. Central Brooklyn’s neighborhoods grew organically over the centuries, often combining the best of residential, commercial and industrial architecture. Bedford Stuyvesant has several of these streets, but we’ve picked just one — chock full of great residential architecture and history, and a fine cast of characters who shaped the area, and Brooklyn. Join architectural historians Suzanne Spellen and Morgan Munsey for this tour of a neighborhood, as distilled through walking down one street in Bed-Stuy.
