"A real small town feel"

Rosebank, a neighborhood in Staten Island, has a real small-town feel. Its breezy location on the Narrows gives spectacular views of the Manhattan skyline, Upper New York Bay and the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge and provides beaches and waterfront parks. This area has something for everyone.

Residents take full advantage of Von Briesen Park, where children go sledding every winter. Fort Wadsworth, a decommissioned military base, now a park, from whose bluffs you can see the cruise ships coming and going through the Narrows is also a neighborhood favorite.

Clubs like the 60-year-old Rosebank Boys and Ragazzi di Rosebank, an offshoot group started in 1997, keep local men busy with charity and social events.

Commuters from Rosebank have many transportation options. The S51, S52, S78 and S81 buses get rush-hour commuters to the Staten Island Ferry terminal in just 15 minutes. The 22-minute boat ride, which is free, connects passengers with the 1, 4, 5, R and W trains to Midtown.

Lots of schools in the area make for a family friendly community. Some young Rosebank residents attend schools like Public School 13 on Vermont Avenue or Intermediate School 49 on Warren Street.
