"The Heart of Bed-Stuy"

Rochester Avenue is a busy street that is in the heart of Bedford Stuyvesant. Populated with mostly mid-rise apartments and tenements, this is not a very affluent neighborhood and it has been riddled with crime over the years. This is a working class neighborhood with solid citizens who are banding together to keep their community clean and free of drugs. Those who live here have a lot of small bodegas and corner grocery stores, small eateries, laundromats, storefront churches and the like. There are several medical centers close by, so there is excellent health care. Transportation options are also good. You will always find people on the street on Rochester Avenue. It really is a very friendly neighborhood filled with good people trying to make an honest living.
