Neighborhood Highlights

  • print

Often referred to as the "greenest borough," Staten Island includes a network of lush golf links, a low-rise skyline and wooded hiking trails that are perfect for a relaxing autumn day. A fast and free way to begin your visit is with a ride on the Staten Island Ferry, which cruises past the Statue of Liberty. After arriving at St. George, visit the historic St. George Theatre, an architectural gem showcasing a variety of exciting performances. Nearby, Snug Harbor Cultural Center & Botanical Garden features impressive grounds and gardens—including the New York Chinese Scholar’s Garden and the Tuscan Garden—modeled after the Villa Gamberaia in Florence, Italy. Mid-island, you can explore the natural habitats of the Greenbelt’s nearly 2,800 acres and learn more about its flora and fauna at the Greenbelt Nature Center.
