Grymes Hill is a North Shore neighborhood, which happens to be situated upon a hill by the same name. The Grymes Hill area is bordered on the west by Victory Boulevard, on the north by Cebra Avenue, and the south by Clove Road. Van Duzer Street and Richmond Road to the intersection of the Staten Island Expressway represent the final border. Named after Suzette Bosque Grymes, widow of the first governor of Louisiana who settled on Staten Island in 1836, Grymes Hill offers some of the most spectacular views of the Lower New York Bay and the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge. It is the second-highest point on Staten Island (Todt Hill being the highest) and is known for being the home of two post-secondary institutions: Wagner College and the Staten Island campus of St. John’s University. Much of Grymes Hill consists of private homes, many dating from the 1920s, but there are also several apartment buildings and garden apartments in the area.
