"Industrial Site and Freighting Scene"

Port Ivory is a neighborhood in the northwestern corner of Staten Island. Procter & Gamble once manufactured the famous ivory soap in this area, hence the name “Port Ivory.” The factory closed in about 1991, and the area remains a freighting and industrial scene.

There is no ambience in the area, at least that I can find. On the weekend, there is limited noise which does have an appealing draw - but, clearly at the expense of your sightly senses. Let’s face it, this area is not pretty.

There are no café’s, boutiques, even mom-and-pop shops. Restaurants are limited and there is absolutely no nightlife. Residents must travel to nearby neighborhoods to find any signs of life.

There are homes scattered throughout, but you will primarily find industrial buildings and freight gateways. Limited trees and brush give you that manufacturing feel.
