3 things to do and see near Common Halsey


Nestled in the heart of Bed-Stuy, Common Halsey offers renters everything they need in a comfortable home. Of course, there’s all that comes with being a Common member, including a private bedroom in a fully-furnished shared suite, household essentials, a built-in community, utilities, WiFi, discounts to local and national brands, and more. But alongside these perks, there are two additional special things about Common Halsey. The first are its amazing amenity spaces, including a shared lounge, ideal for working from home or game night with friends, and the two outdoor spaces: a rooftop and a backyard.

The second is surprisingly not inside the home itself. What makes Common Halsey special is its incredible location, close to everything you need in a neighborhood (like great grocery stores) and want (like cool boutiques and delicious food.) Keep reading to learn about our three favorite spots just blocks from Common Halsey, or head to our website to take a closer look at the space.

Peaches HotHouse

If you’ve lived in Brooklyn previously, or have a foodie friend in the neighborhood, then you’ve probably already heard about this iconic Brooklyn restaurant. Serving up Nashville Style Hot Chicken, fried shrimp, and comfort food classics like grits and mac n cheese, Peaches is loved for its generous portions and out of this world flavors.

As a member at Common Halsey, you’re only a block away from this finger licking food, and while we wouldn’t recommend eating it every day, we can’t imagine anything better than being able to treat ourselves to one of their fried chicken sandwiches whenever we like.

Fou Gallery

If you’re an art lover, then you’re probably already familiar with New York’s diverse network of museums and local galleries, and are willing to make the trip to Chelsea, Chinatown, or the Upper East Side to spend a way browsing their collections. But what if you could have access to new, contemporary art without hopping on the 6 train?

In addition to beautifully curated exhibits, the gallery also offers events and workshops, although they’re on hold during COVID.
