New Springville is located in central Staten Island and is perhaps best known as home to the Staten Island Mall.
The construction of the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge, which opened in 1964, allowed for quick and easy access between Staten Island and New York City’s other boroughs. As a result, New Springville and the surrounding areas saw an immediate residential development boom. Most of these homes were built around the same time, lending the community a cohesive architectural aesthetic. Mainly late 20th century construction, the New Springville real estate market consists of attached and detached homes, as well as condos.
New Springville was largely rural until 1964, when the E. J. Korvette department store chain opened an outlet on the site of a former chicken farm. Soon after in 1973, the Staten Island Mall opened on the grounds of what used to be the Staten Island Airport. These new constructions forever altered the character of the neighborhood. As the town continued to evolve as a commercial center, the land adjacent to the mall was converted to business and commercial use, as well. Over the years, New Springville has seen robust commercial development and has become a central hub for shopping and various amenities.
Most notable of among New Springville’s residential communities is Heartland Village, located within the boundaries of Richmond Ave., Rockland Ave., Richmond Hill Road, and Forest Hill Road. This small residential community falls within very close proximity of the Staten Island Mall and has become one of the most sought after real estate sites in the borough. New Springville is a major transportation hub, with a number of local and express buses running through the town.
