St. George Neighborhood Review - Staten Island Moving Guide
Located on the northeastern tip of Staten Island, St. George is bordered by Tompkinsville to the south and the neighborhood of New Brighton to the west.
In this St. George neighborhood review, we'll look into public transportation, restaurants, average apartment rent, and home sale prices.
Possibly due to its convenient placement right off the Staten Island Ferry Terminal, St. George remains the most densely developed neighborhood on Staten Island.
Victorian, Colonial and Tudor-style homes populate the historic district of the St. George neighborhood but there are many apartments situated right along the waterfront with fabulous views of the harbor and NYC.
The opening of the Empire Outlets in the summer of 2019, has basically transformed the landscape of the neighborhood.
The new level of foot traffic is unrecognizable for St.George. The Empire Outlets not only offer popular brand name shops, but a number of dining options (including a Shake Shack!), and soon-to-be added 190-room hotel.
The St. George Theater is a landmarked spot popular for hosting performances, film and television shoots, concerts and educational programs.
FUN FACT:The Verrazano-Narrows Bridge, also known as the starting point for the New York City marathon, claimed three lives during its construction in 1964.
The Verrazano-Narrows Bridge is the longest bridge in the country and connects Staten Island to Brooklyn.
Staten Island is the only borough not connected to New York City by the subway, so it looks like the ferry or bus will have to do for all of those non-car owners out there.
St. George is the terminal for the Staten Island Railway and the Staten Island Ferry.
The ferry takes approximately 30 minutes to reach Manhattan.
