NEW YORKERS! Is Bed-Stuy a safe, fun area?

I'm renting a brownstone (Nostrand&Hancock) for a week near the A train nostrand subway stop. It's a group of 6 girls and 2 guys, age 22-24. We will be coming back late from the city, is it going to be safe? Also, is it an area we could hang out in? Cafes during the day nearby? Bars at night? Any info is... show more I'm renting a brownstone (Nostrand&Hancock) for a week near the A train nostrand subway stop. It's a group of 6 girls and 2 guys, age 22-24.
