Staten Island apartment description

Step into another world in this duplex apartment on the top two floors of a140 year-old hilltop Victorian home. Relax in the evening with the lights from the bay and the Verrazano Bridge outside the window. Yet you are just a 20 minute downhill walk to the Staten Island Ferry, the greatest free ride in the world. The house is surrounded by a lush, terraced garden with tree swing and tree house. Descend from our secluded hilltop into downtown Staten Island, a diverse, up-and-coming real New York neighborhood with a convenient strip of restaurants and small shops.

If you have the spirit of romantic adventure and hate overpriced hotel rooms, we can make your New York stay even more special, and affordable.

The Ferry to Manhattan: The Staten Island Ferry is by far the loveliest way to enter Manhattan, a 25-minute cruise across the harbor. You pass very close to the Statue of Liberty and watch the skyscrapers grow enormous as you approach. The boat runs 24/7, usually every half hour. It runs more often in rush hours, hourly very late at night. And it's FREE.

The walk to the Ferry from our house is an easy downhill stroll. Coming back you may prefer to hop a bus 2-3 stops, or a cab for $5-7.

Staten Island: If you stay more than a few days, you may want to see the sights of Staten Island itself, New York's 'forgotten borough.' These include Snug Harbor, a 19th-century sailors' retirement home turned museum and cultural center, the Jacques Marchais Tibetan Art Museum, and the Alice Austen museum, a beautiful waterfront house devoted to a pioneering woman photographer. The south shore of Staten Island offers many miles of sandy beach and boardwalk if you want to take a few hours off from being a tourist. The island is famous for its Italian food, but newer immigrant groups are making their contributions as well. You will find the prices for restaurants, like lodging, far more reasonable than in Manhattan.
