"Great place for kids and raising a family"

In the neighborhood of New Brighton there are houses of all sizes and descriptions. Single-family detached homes to attached brick townhouses populate the area. The overall area is green and blissfully quiet, aside from Forest Avenue where you will find locally owned food shops.

A number of low-rise, Main Street-style commercial districts, like Forest Avenue, service New Brighton with banks, small businesses and casual restaurants. R. H. Tugs, on the waterfront, serves burgers and American fare, while Adobe Blues, which serves Mexican food, has a bar that is popular with different age groups at different hours of the day.

Light traffic makes New Brighton an ideal spot for children, for whom there are a number of public and private schools. Public schools include P.S. 31, on Layton Avenue, which teaches kindergarten through fifth grade. I.S. 61, is on Castleton Avenue, and serves students in Grades 6 to 9, before they move on to Curtis High School, on Hamilton Avenue, in nearby St. George. Curtis High School has a great reputation amongst other high schools in Staten Island.
