History Of the Area: Stuvesant Heights was founded in 1640 by Peter Stuyvesant. It is a beautiful residential district that was largely developed between 1870 and 1920. The name "Stuvesant Heights" came into local usage during the 1890's and distinguishes it from the larger Bedford Stuyvesant area in which it lies.
Today: The Stuyvesant Heights Brownstone/Brick neighborhood preserves the neat, pleasing appearance it had when it was built.
The handsome blocks of houses, many with attractive front yards, are enhanced by tree-lined streets and wide avenues. Passing along busy and commercial Fulton Street, one would hardly suspect the existence only a block away, of this charming district.
