Although home to over half a million people, Staten Island is the least populous borough in New York City, giving the community the feel of a much smaller city by comparison. The northern part of the island is quite urbanized, somewhat resembling the landscape of nearby Brooklyn. Thanks to the affordable rental rates and easy access to Brooklyn and Manhattan, the North Shore is a hotbed for creatives, with many musicians and artists honing their crafts in the local venues.

Major touring acts regularly pass through Staten Island, with the historic St. George Theatre serving as a one of the city’s most legendary venues. Located in the north-central portion of the island, CUNY College of Staten Island enrolls over 13,000 students, serving as a major cultural hub and contributing a youthful energy to the surrounding area.

As you move south, the environment becomes more suburban. A vast network of public parks covers a huge portion of the island’s landscape, from the coastal great Kills Park to the scenic Clove Lakes Park to the enormous Latourette Park. Amongst the lush greenery, you’ll find neighborhood streets lined with clean sidewalks and single-family homes, a far cry from what most people picture when imagining life in New York City. The low-key atmosphere and more affordable rental options attract many folks who work in Manhattan but prefer a more subdued (and budget-friendly) home environment.

Living in Staten Island

  • 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.
