Designated an historic district in 1971, Stuyvesant Heights has some of the longest rows of historically significant brownstones, brick and limestone homes in the borough of Brooklyn. Many of the restored and impeccably maintained homes are comparable to those of Brooklyn Heights and Park Slope. Stuyvesant Heights is the original home of St. Johns University at Willoughby and Lewis Avenues.
