    Bedford Stuyvesant is a largely residential neighborhood known for its rich history and rows of architecturally stunning brownstones and limestones in the Romanesque Revival, Renaissance Revival and Queen Anne styles. In fact, many of the houses anchored by the corner of Stuyvesant Ave and Jefferson Ave were designed by famed architect Magnus Emil Dahlander, who also designed some of the most beautiful brownstones in Crown Heights, Park Slope, Prospect Heights, and Bedford Stuyvesant.

    Georges-Andre Vintage Cafe, Angelas, Seraghinas, Peaches Hothouse, Beso are some delicious local favorites. Central to a number of playgrounds and parks, including Herbert Von King Park, one of the first parks built in Brooklyn, designed by Olmstead & Vaux, who also designed Prospect Park. Convenient to the A, C, J, Z trains.

    271 Stuyvesant is further distinguished by its owner, the renowned photojournalist Brenda Kenneally, a Guggenheim Fellow whose thought provoking work has received numerous awards including The W. Eugene Smith Award for Humanistic Photography, a Soros Criminal Justice Fellowship and The Mother Jones Award. The proceeds of this sale will enable the launch of a non-profit creative residency for marginalized youth, founded by Ms. Kenneally called A Little Creative Class, Inc. (http://www.alittlecreativeclass.org). Through our Real Estate Social Impact (ReSI) program, a portion of the sales commission will also be donated to this project.
