"Century Old Oak Trees Populate The Area"

It is hard to imagine being so close to New York City and yet have a home nestled in such a rustic setting. Yet standing at the lighthouse gives you a backdrop of Staten Islands waterfront, and views of the world beyond. The ambiance of Lighthouse Hill is unique, there is a peaceful quiet that surrounds this neighborhood. The best part is that this community’s sound proofing is provided via century old oak trees that dominate the neighborhood.

Let me give you a little history of Lighthouse Hill. Lighthouse Hill was given it name for obvious reasons. The area was formerly known as Richmond Hill until approximately 1912 when the lighthouse began operation, at which time the hill became known as Lighthouse Hill. Frank Lloyd-Wright the famous architect also shares a bit of history in this neighborhood, as his prefabricated “Cass house” sits in this community. On the cultural end, the Jacques Marchais Museum of Tibetan Art makes Lighthouse Hill its home.

If you’re thinking of moving to Lighthouse Hill, think tranquility with a view. There are few, if any places in New York City that have the natural features that grace this wonderful neighborhood.
