One of the most popular neighborhoods on Staten Island’s North Shore is St. George. Dubbed “downtown Staten Island,” St. George is a vibrant community known for its unique and bustling atmosphere, art and cultural centers, old Victorian homes, and rich history.
As a Staten Island realtor, I am truly excited to tell my clients about all that this neighborhood currently has to offer, as well as its promising future. As the future site of the world’s tallest Ferris wheel, St. George is experiencing recent growth that is outpacing other areas of New York City.
The revitalization of the area promises to add even more shopping, dining, and entertainment to an already thriving area. In short, if you are a potential home buyer looking to move to an up-and-coming area of Staten Island that provides an urban feel in a predominantly suburban area, then St. George is the place to look.
And summer-time is the perfect time to visit Staten Island’s North Shore and check out its many attractions! Why not coordinate your visit with a tour of some of the homes for sale in the St. George area?
As Staten Island’s North Shore expert, I would love to show you some beautiful real estate properties in St. George, and discuss the many advantages to buying a home in this up-and-coming area.
Just steps from the Staten Island Ferry, St. George is an exciting place to explore. Here are just a few of the upcoming summer attractions taking place in the area:
Richmond County Bank Ballpark
Right next door to the Staten Island Ferry Terminal lays the 6,500-seat stadium, Richmond County Bank Ballpark, home of the Staten Island Yankees.
Come join thousands of loyal fans who gather here to take part in one of America’s favorite past-times. You won’t be disappointed in the food, the fun, and especially the view of the waterfront and skyline of Lower Manhattan. The RCB Ballpark also hosts other special events, including concerts and a movie series for kids.
One such event, Beatles Blast, will take place on August 2nd from 6-10pm, and will highlight The Beatles’ hits as Staten Island youngsters play their hearts out for Autism Awareness.
Staten Island Esplanade
It is also the site of the St. George Waterfront Festival, which will be taking place on the Promenade adjacent to the Staten Island Ferry Terminal and Richmond County Ballpark on August 3rd from 1-9pm. Enjoy a day of festivities before a fireworks show at 9pm.
St. George Theatre
One of Staten Island’s treasures is the St. George Theatre. The theatre has been hosting a variety of different concerts, plays, children’s productions, comedy shows, and dance performances since 1929- featuring both international and local talent.
Recent renovations have only highlighted the beauty of this historic cultural center. Enjoy a jazzy afternoon in downtown St. George at the Jazz Festival on August 4th from 4-9pm, or check out the Box Office for more upcoming events.
Staten Island Museum
Just a short walk from the Staten Island Ferry Terminal is the Staten Island Institute of Arts and Sciences, a museum dedicated to the history of Staten Island and all of its people.
Founded in 1881, the Staten Island Museum is the oldest cultural organization on Staten Island, and offers a variety of different exhibits devoted to the art, science and cultural history of Staten Island. Check out the Staten Island Museum at its location on Stuyvesant Place before it moves to Snug Harbor Cultural Center.
Staten Island Borough Hall
You don’t need to be a history or art enthusiast to appreciate the beauty of Staten Island Borough Hall. A designated New York City landmark, Borough Hall’s hilltop location allows it to be viewed from the harbor and much of St. George.
