The actual Bed Stuy is located between Broadway@ the north,Fulton Street @ the South, Bedford Av @ the west end and Stuyvesant Av on the east end. Many interlopers call any area where people of color live Bed Stuy. I lived there from 1950 until 1973. If you live in NYC you should posses "street smarts". get good locks, close your windows. Crime occurs all over

treatment accorded white defendants, especially young ones.
