Restoration Plaza (The Plaza), is one of Bedford Stuyvesant’s most iconic landmarks. Rehabilitated in 1972 from its former life as the Sheffield Farms Milk Bottling Plant, the plaza has been the venue for concerts, holiday parties, job fairs, farmers’ markets, film screenings, our annual 10K Run, and many other events. We welcome community members and vendors to hold events in one of our many spaces. Reserve a Space

Customer Testimonials


 

Restoration is deeply committed to the physical and economic revitalization of the Bed-Stuy Gateway Business District (BID). The Business District, encompassing several blocks of Fulton Street and Nostrand Avenue, is Bedford-Stuyvesant's primary shopping and commercial area. As managing agent for the BID which became operational in October 2009, Restoration oversees district-wide sanitation, maintenance, security, marketing and promotion, landscaping, beautification and day-to-day administration.

Restoration Plaza lies in the heart of this vibrant business area. We are transforming the physical and economic landscape of our community through ambitious renovations to this historic plaza. These improvements have created a more accessible, pedestrian-friendly and energy-efficient public space capable of sustaining—and even increasing—the 1.5 million annual visits to the Plaza and attracting quality businesses that meet community needs.

Many exciting developments are in progress in the heart of Bed-Stuy. The $9 million Fulton Street Streetscape project is currently underway, with funding from the New York City Economic Development Corporation and the city Departments of Transportation and Parks and Recreation. The project is slated to be completed by the end of Summer 2017. Restoration staff is also spearheading the creation of Marcy Plaza, an 8,000 sq. ft. recreational/commercial space soon to be located directly across from Restoration Plaza.
