I have lived there my entire life and I'm a real estate professional also. Bed Stuy is very block by block (more good blocks). You want to focus more on the blocks with predominately brownstones.

Dear angelawsome95:

Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. The answer to your questions really depends on what you are used to and what your definition of "bad" is. Your best bet would be to spend some time in the neighborhood and speak to some of the business owners in the area. See what the "lay of the land" is late at night as well.

When it comes to any safety/crime related issues, it's always best to contact the local police department with all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand. If unfamiliar with the area(s) do revisit more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with locals/neighbors. Real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase/rent, or not, in specific neighborhoods.

Well.. it's still ny and bedstuy so the closet you are to a subway the better you'll be. Bedford stuy is very much a block by block case.
I love it but you need to know that there is crime every where and you should be alert. I recommend to check those map crime that certain sites offers. You can see what type of crimes recorded, when and where. Just a good tool to see what you are dealing with. If you got any questions you can feel free to contact me.
