"welcome to suburbia!"

All right, so that could describe most of Staten Island. Whatever. Raleigh really is stereotypically suburb-y. Single family homes, cars in the driveway, neighbors who DON'T know when to turn off the sprinklers (but who are otherwise perfectly friendly if they have a moment between shuttling kids off to various schools, after-school activities, post after-school activities, etc), and the occasional swimming pool just add to the charm.

The best thing about this little street is its proximity to the zoo. If you have kids and move here, you will be super mom or dad for sure. It's also pretty quiet, plenty of trees. Altogether a pleasant compromise.

"Raleigh Avenue, Staten Island, New York"

I love this road because it is near a zoo and I love taking photos of animals. You can also feed the animals. My favorite animal is the monkeys. We walked hour for a couple of hours. It was fun for I and my husband. You can also buy refreshments while you are visiting the animals. Many of the kids there appeared to have fune feeding birds. If you are on this road you should visit. It is called Barret Park Zoo. It is pretty big.

"Great place for families."

This street is a stones throw from the Zoo and many lakes. You have the Zoo around the corner for the youngin's then you have the lakes and walking trails for the adults. Your close to a busy road ( clove rd) so you may get a bit of traffic noise here and there, but its nothing to be alarmed of. Everyone on this street would make a great neighbor and everyone looks out for everyone else.

Downside is your close to the cemetery. But the upsides outweigh it by far. You have schools near by for both young and older kids. Parks, Zoo's, Lakes, and everything else. This is the perfect street for a family with young kids.
