"Great Neighborhood for young families looking for a starter home."

We recently purchased our first home in Graniteville's Cypress Crest Condo Community. Growing up in the Bensonhurst and Boro Park neighborhoods of Brooklyn as a child everyone knew everyone and children would be outside during the summer Months with there parents as we played every sport from wuffle ball, soccer, hockey, to basketball. This community has brought that feeling back. My wife not being a driver, it was difficult for us locating a nice area where shopping was commutable by foot. My office being in Bensonhurst, the commute by car is 15 minutes without traffic and 30 minutes in bad traffic. To sum it up Graniteville is a suburban feel with Brooklyn Character (easily accessible By foot, mass transit or car and a tight knit community)

"New Homebuyers Heaven and Haven"

Graniteville is a Staten Island neighborhood known for its quality and affordable housing. Most of the area is comprised of newer construction homes. The neighborhood primarily consists of semi-attached homes and town homes, and a few spots in the area have clusters of fully detached homes. This is a great area for young marrieds and singles in terms of real estate pricing. Graniteville is the perfect neighborhood for new homebuyers seeking affordable options for their first home.

Graniteville is located just north of the Staten Island Expressway and its proximity to both the Goethals Bridge and Bayonne Bridge make for an easy commute if you work in the New Jersey City area.

The neighborhood lies just north of a very busy commercial strip along Richmond Avenue. The strip extends all the way to the Staten Island Mall which is approximately four miles away. This strip boasts some of the heaviest and congested traffic on Staten Island.
