It’s just a one block walk to Brooklyn’s Fulton Street shopping, subways and buses which makes SANKOFA ABAN B&B extremely convenient.
You can get to Downtown Brooklyn, the Brooklyn Bridge, Brooklyn Heights Pomenade and Brooklyn Bridge Park in 10 minutes, the Financial District in Downtown Manhattan in 15 or arrive in Mid-town in just 25-30 minutes. All while being in one of the most significant neighborhoods in Brooklyn’s history (More about Bed-Stuy in this NY Times article).
The neighborhood has so many wonderful things to explore including historic districts like Bedford, home of Sankofa Aban, 2 blocks away and 3 blocks from Stuyvesant Heights 1860 Akwaaba Mansion, vibrant churches, and a YMCA with an olympic size swimming pool, sauna, and steam room for only 10 dollars a day. It’s a short walk back to SANKOFA where there is a Spa Tub waiting before retiring for the evening.
Pastry Shops, Wines Bars, Book Stores, Art Galleries and a Day Spa are within a short walk. The noted restaurants of Bed-Stuy, Clinton Hill and Fort Greene are also nearby.
Plus, there is The Billie Holiday Theatre at Restoration Plaza where there are frequent theatrical and music productions. And it is only a few minutes to get to BAM and the Harvey Theater, Brooklyn Botanical Garden, Brooklyn Museum, MoCADA and the Brooklyn Historical Society.
Your host would be happy to help plan a stay of interest, with advance notice please.
