Property description

Our renovated 1870s refuge is the closest you can get to a comfortable old house in the country, but still be in New York City. The lush landscape with tree swing and play area allows you to switch off Manhattan, but it's just a 20 minute walk or four bus stops, down to the Ferry, then the greatest free ride in the world into town. You can see the Verrazano Bridge twinkling from our windows, and the sea from our street.

Indoors you will have room to spread out, cook dinner and relax after a tough day of tourism. Just bring your clothes, we provide everything else. Extended family and friend groups of 5-9 are our specialty. If your crowd is bigger, we have another apartment upstairs in the same house.

You don't need a car, shops and restaurants are a few minutes' walk away. But if you bring one, you will have no trouble parking on our street without the dreaded 'alternate side' hassles you get elsewhere in NYC.
Staying here does require climbing steps.

Add a romantic, adventurous twist to your stay in New York.



Despite fare increases everywhere else, the Staten Island Ferry remains the greatest FREE ride in the world, the most beautiful way to enter New York and view the Statue of Liberty and the downtown skyline. Ferries run 24/7, usually every half hour. The ferry terminal is a relaxing 15 minute walk downhill from the house. If you're feeling less energetic on the way back, cabs are available at the terminal for about $5.


Cheap Eats

Within a few minutes walk of our house, you can enjoy, Mexican, Italian, Polish, Sri Lankan and Senegalese cuisines, among others, at much lower prices than the Manhattan tourist traps. Feast on Downtown Staten Island!

Car: Not Necessary

We are located in bustling downtown Staten Island, a lively, diverse neighborhood across New York Bay from Lower Manhattan. This is a fairly typical residential area for one of New York's 'outer boroughs,' a crossroads of cultures with fascinating people to meet, delicious food to eat, and constant surprises.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: This is a genuine family business run by me, my husband and children. We live a few blocks away and love having our guests discover the pleasures of Staten Island. I am a licensed NYC tour guide, my husband is a native New Yorker. We are more than happy to help you plan your trip and make the most of our wonderful city.

Why the Owner Chose Staten Island:
Our row of eight Victorian homes stretching up a steep hill above the harbor is a unique architectural phenomenon for New York City. Trees tower above you and cool breezes blow on those hot summer nights. You are in your own world, but the city is at your doorstep. And instead of riding the subway, you get to sail across the harbor, watch the skyscrapers loom out of the horizon, and the Statue of Liberty so close you could almost touch it.
