The Culture and Amenities
Staten Island is the perfect balance between big-city living and suburban charm. In the area known as the North Shore (which includes neighborhoods like St. George and Clifton), residents tend to live in a more urban setting and have easy access to ferry transit. On the other end of the island in South Shore, residential neighborhoods are surrounded by spacious parks and noteworthy historic sites. But no matter where you decide to live, you can enjoy Staten Island's many amenities, including Conference House Park, Historic Richmond Town, South Shore Golf Course, Silver Lake Golf Course, and Miller Field, to name a few.
Staten Island residents can commute to other NYC boroughs by taking Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA)'s Staten Island Railway, the Staten Island Ferry, or numerous thoroughfares. Several noteworthy bridges link Staten Island to surrounding communities: the Outerbridge Crossing connects with Perth Amboy, NJ; the Goethals Bridge connects with Elizabeth, NJ; the Bayonne Bridge connects with Bayonne, NJ; and the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge connects with Brooklyn.
