About Bailey’s Café

Bailey’s Café is a space of community healing and belonging — a secular church, a home, a kitchen table. Bailey’s welcomes all with an open heart, compassion and love, generating a culture of belongingness, non-judgment, acceptance, community, and space to be your full self. This is Bailey’s unique value.

“We Are Here (Brooklyn)”
an installation and celebration of the longtime residents of Bedford-Stuyvesant
Co-Presented by Bailey’s Cafe and 651 ARTS

“So, this place is special because of the people who have, in spite of how this community was started, which I’m sure everybody knows was, right, a place for elite white folk, but it has become what it is because of the individuals who live here and because of who they show up as in the World.” Natasha J.

“We Are Here (Brooklyn)” is a celebration of Bedford-Stuyvesant’s rich cultural legacy—a testament to its past and present. The project, originally curated as part of Bailey’s Cafe’s As Quiet As It’s Kept, centers images and stories of longtime Bed-Stuy residents, cementing their place as neighborhood icons in the name of resilience and permanence.
