North Shore

Staten Island’s North Shore is anchored by our famous Staten Island Ferry. The ferry marks the hub of the Island’s transportation system with a train, several bus lines and cars beginning their journeys at the terminal. Within walking distance are the Staten Island 9/11 Memorial, the National Lighthouse Museum, the Richmond County Bank Ballpark, the St. George Theatre, and very soon, the Empire Outlets. The corridor is also flavored with an array of restaurants – from Sri Lankan, to Italian, to Spanish, to African, to American, and beyond. Two local breweries are close-by for an afternoon drink or nightcap.   


The mid-island is accessible by train, bus or car and is home to the city’s only historic village, Historic Richmond Town, where history lives on through daily talks, tours, and demonstrations. Just up the hill is the truly unique Jacques Marchais Museum of Tibetan Art, which is more reminiscent of the Himalayas than a suburb. Our beachfront is close by, featuring restaurants and recreation. 

South Shore

Boasting the Conference House and Conference House Park at the southernmost point of New York State, the South Shore features several historic sites, natural spaces, shopping, and restaurants. If you’re a repeat visitor to the area, you owe it to yourself to check out these sites!
