Crown Heights

Brooklyn , NY

The name “Crown Heights” was used starting around 1910 to describe the area south of Eastern Parkway. The area north of the parkway was called “Bedford” well into the 20th century, since the area was considered part of Bedford-Stuyvesant.

While historians often refer to Crown Heights “North” and “South” due to their demographic, architectural, topographical, and historical differences, most do not make this distinction even today.

Crown Heights North was named a Six to Celebrate in  2015

Crown Heights South was named a Six to Celebrate in 2016
