Sales hurt in pioneer nabes

October 27, 2008 08:51AM

The number of houses sold in Bedford Stuyvesant dropped to 423 this year, a 58 percent decline from 2005, when 1,004 one-, two- and three-family homes were sold in the neighborhood. While fringe neighborhoods like Bed-Stuy seem to have taken the biggest hit over this period, house sales fell by at least 20 percent in almost every Queens and Brooklyn neighborhood over that time. Sales were down more than 60 percent in Brighton Beach, Bushwick and Canarsie in Brooklyn; and in Woodhaven, Kew Gardens and Richmond Hill in Queens.
