Richmond Town is best known for Historic Richmond Town, a village of restored buildings from the 17th through early 20th centuries. The structures and costumed reenactors help visitors feel like they’re experiencing early NYC history for themselves.
Catch the S74 bus from the St. George Ferry Terminal, where the Staten Island Ferry arrives, and take it to Arthur Kill Road/Cemetery 1 Gate.
Attention, bivalve fans: the neighborhood was originally known as “Coccles Town” in honor of its proximity to plentiful clams and oysters.
