Stvyersant Heights : One Of Best Old Neighborhoods in Country


Brooklyn‘s Stuyvesant Heights Historic District landed itself on a nation-wide “Best Old-House Neighborhoods” list, thanks in part to its diverse array of townhouses.

The March issue of This Old House magazine specifically named the Brooklyn neighborhood as the “Best Place for Brownstone Buffs” for its third annual list.

Editors of the home and real estate publication searched the country and Canada for 51 neighborhoods that they describe as having “promising futures, people that care, and homes that truly deserve a long-term commitment.”

Located nearby Clinton Hill and Fort Greene, Stuyvesant Heights, hailed as a cultural enclave, was chosen for its variety of brownstones, the emergence of restaurants and cafés and the town’s decreasing crime rate.

“If you’re a buyer looking for lots of architectural detail, this place has a lot to offer,” said real estate agent Judd Harris. “And homes are still within reach of the average New York City buyer.”

The magazine said the neighborhood’s townhouses, which usually go for millions of dollars, are currently selling for as low as $475,000, but won’t remain that way for long.
