New Brighton Apartments
Staten Island

Served by numerous local buses that travel between St. George Ferry Terminal and various Staten Island and Manhattan locations, New Brighton has been easily accessible since the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge connected Brooklyn and Staten Island in 1964.

That marked a period of booming industry for New Brighton. Even through some tumultuous transitioning in the '70s, the New Brighton community has maintained the neighborhood as a historically rich and vibrant one.

More about New Brighton

In the late 1800s, New Brighton had the uniqueness of being one of the few Village Halls remaining in NYC. As politics became more centralized toward the 1900s, the purpose of Village Halls became relatively moot, and New Brighton became recognized as a neighborhood, as it still is today on the North Shore of Staten Island. Early accounts of New Brighton list well-paved wide streets, ornamental trees, and handsome buildings. By 1886, the neighborhood had a full sewerage system and its bayside view was an attraction to locals and visitors alike.

New Brighton seemed ahead of its time in the late 1800s, and today its residents echo a similarly neighborly vibe as was documented back then. The colorful September 11th Memorial on Richmond Terrace, near an excellent farmer's market, is one indication of that. The neighborhood is also host to a wide range of congregations, including St. Peter's Church, which is the oldest Roman Catholic Church on Staten Island. New Brighton touts a strong community that values its wide range of attractions, from designated landmarks like the Gothic Revival style W.S. Pendleton Houses at 1 & 22 Pendleton Place to community organizations like the Creative Photographer's Guild, a non-profit that creates photographic exhibits.

Some of New Brighton’s picturesque settings have appeared in cinema. Many scenes from Mike Nichols' 1998 romantic comedy Working Girl, which features an opening scene on the Staten Island Ferry, were filmed in New Brighton. As a 2004 New York Times piece chronicled, New Brighton is home to citizens with varying professional and cultural backgrounds, who enjoy the neighborhood's knack for bursting greenery and overgrown landscaping. New Brighton appeared ahead of its time in the late 1800s, and today it continues to be a desirable place to live in Staten Island.
