"Luxury living and upscale homes"

Grymes Hill is located on Staten Island’s north shore and sits just across from Emerson Hill. The Staten Island Expressway divides the neighborhood. Sunnyside sits in the valley just west of Grymes Hill and borders the neighborhood of Castleton Corners.

Grymes Hill is largely considered a high end to luxury home markets on Staten Island, with some of the homes easily exceeding the 2 million dollar mark. This is a very upscale neighborhood and has a few upscale places to shop. As with most Staten Island neighborhoods, you will need to frequent your five star restaurants and couture shops in the Manhattan area. The neighborhoods in Staten Island, like Grymes Hill, just don’t have a lot to offer in terms of shopping and dining.

For those looking for one of New York City’s best vistas, there aren’t many competitors. Yes, holding the title as the highest point on the United States East Coast has its advantages. The best view street is Sunrise Terrace and is an appropriately named street, offering an awe-inspiring look of the sunrise over New York harbor.
