Bedford Avenue is the longest street in Brooklyn, stretching 10.2 miles. It runs through more architectural styles, demographic groups, and neighborhoods than any other Brooklyn street. It originates in Sheepshead Bay in the south and passes through the neighborhoods of Williamsburg, Bedford-Stuyvesant, Crown Heights, Flatbush and Midwood. The name Bedford's origins are in Brooklyn's dim past; it could have been named for Britain's Bedfordshire, or the village of Bedford or it may be an English version of the Dutch Bestevaar, "place where old men meet”. By the 1890s its full length had been established.
