St. George is situated on the north shore of Staten Island and serves as the perfect gateway between the wonders of Manhattan and the calming environment of Staten Island.
Its breathtaking views, stately architecture, and quick commute times make St. George an amazing place to inhabit and explore. The neighborhood, with its tree-lined streets and amazing views of New York Harbor, provides renters and visitors alike with big city convenience and suburban calm.
St. George’s waterfront is lined with great attractions, like the Richmond County Bank Ballpark, where the Staten Island Yankees wow crowds with Class A baseball. There’s also an annual waterfront festival that attracts families from all parts of the city, featuring historic re-enactments, a pizza eating contest, local artists, and much more. The much-anticipated National Lighthouse Museum will open its doors in 2014, and soon after that comes the debut of the world’s largest Ferris Wheel.
A few blocks inland, you can enjoy beautiful displays of classic Victorian architecture, like St. Peters’ Church or the St. George Theatre. Take a short walk from the ferry to St. Mark’s Place to discover St. Peter’s, a spectacular neo-Romanesque church. Its massive stained-glass windows depict Bible stories. Inside, a collection of stunning sculptures, columns, and frescoes will delight any art aficionado. Around the corner on Hyatt Street, the St. George Theatre is a majestic landmark entertaining audiences since 1928.
But the greatest attractions are the views themselves: whether feeling the sun on your face on a open hilltop or dipping your feet in the harbor, you can’t help but marvel at the breathtaking vistas of Lower Manhattan, New Jersey, and the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge.
St. George is Staten Island’s most “New York”-feeling neighborhood. Local cuisine reflects the cultural diversity, with many restaurants on Hyatt Street featuring a spectrum of ethnic food. Also on Hyatt Street, there’s a Public Library and a string of independent and chain commercial shops.
Residents of St. George enjoy instant access to the Staten Island Ferry for a free thirty-minute ride to Manhattan, the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge for access to New Jersey and Brooklyn, and multiple train and bus options for travel within Staten Island.
