"Amazing it's so nice!"
This street is mere blocks from some of the rowdier streets, yet it manages to survive with its dignity intact. With beautiful yet affordable houses, plenty of street parking, and garages and nice yards, one wonders how this has survived in Staten Island without being snatched up. Well, there is a hill, but who notices those things when you're enjoying all the area has to offer? While it doesn't have a lot of nightlife around it, it's just walking distance from the Staten Island ferry, which is how any Staten Islander gets where they want to be going for the night anyway. There's also a cool thrift shop less than a block away, and though the school nearby (PS16) isn't great, it /is/ close. As is a small park, and the hill with all of its nice houses. Several fast food joints and a Western Beef supermarket are also within walking distance.
