Staten Island

Staten Island is New York’s most southern borough. And because of that, residents heavily rely on the Staten Island Ferry to take them to Lower Manhattan.

The North Shore is the most urban area on the island, and the ferry’s point of departure and arrival into Staten Island. Inside the neighborhood, you’ll discover large Victorian homes in the Saint George Historic District, plus Staten Island Yankees Stadium and the zoo.

Conference House Park is located on the south end of the island. It’s the site of a building relic where peace talks were once discussed amidst the Revolutionary War. East Shore features the FDR Boardwalk and Beach – it’s one of the largest in the world, stretching 2.5 miles along the coast. On the west end of Staten Island is the West Shore Expressway and a couple of industrial plants. CUNY College of Staten Island resides here and is adjacent to Willowbrook Park.

Living in Staten Island

  • Transportation

    Because Staten Island is an island, there are certain points of access for roads, bridges and buses that you must use to reach off-island points in New York or New Jersey.

    The Staten Island Ferry serves St. George’s terminal around the clock, and the Staten Island Train runs from Tottenville in the south to Georges Terminal and the ferry connection in the north.

    The Verrazano–Narrows Bridge is a double level bridge that connects the New York City boroughs of Staten Island and Brooklyn. Goethals Bridge connects Staten Island to Newark, NJ. Bayonne Bridge connects Staten Island to Bayonne, NJ. Outerbridge connects Staten Island to Edison, NJ.

    Because of the high cost of parking in Manhattan, many commuters opt to take advantage of the abundant public transportation options.

  • Shopping

    Staten Island Mall is located at the center of Staten Island. JC Penny, Macys and Sears are anchor stores.

    Nothing New Thrift Store supports green living, sharing and charity. The prices are very low. Their motto is “Buy some, Help some, Give some.”

    EG Stores has a large variety of thrift, vintage and other furnishings. Consider a contemporary room divider for only $55 or a chaise for $90. If you’re moving into a new apartment and need to work on a different look, this is a great place to be. The selection of eclectic and attention getting pieces is ever renewed. Save money and reuse.

  • History

    After a brief period of settlement by Dutch colonists, Staten Island came under British control in the 1660s. During the American Revolution, Staten Island served as a staging ground for the British invasion of New York City and remaining under British control until the war ended. The island consisted of numerous small towns until 1898, when Staten Island consolidated with New York City. Beautifully preserved architecture from the island’s past can still be seen in the St. George and St. Paul’s Avenue-Stapleton Heights Historic Districts.

    The Garibaldi-Meucci Museum is located in Rosebank, and was at one time the home of Antonio Meucci, an inventor who developed an early version of the telephone. Giuseppe Garibaldi, who was instrumental in the unification of Italy, lived here for almost two years. The home contains items that were significant for both famous men, including a prototype of the telephone.

  • Parks

    As the most sparsely-populated borough in New York, Staten Island is home to an extensive network of public parks and greenspaces. The enormous Latourette Park at the center of the island is a lush reservation full of trails and footpaths. Countless other parks of every size are spread throughout the community, ensuring that everyone has access to the tranquility of nature within just a few blocks.

  • Cost

    Staten Island tends to have the most affordable rental rates in New York City, with many options available for under $1,600 per month.

  • Restaurants
