"Enjoy the panoramic view offered here"

When it comes to New York City real estate, St. George Staten Island is usually not one of those neighborhoods people consider as the new “place to be.” Areas like Fort Green, Williamsburg, Long Island City, and even Bedford Stuyvesant seemingly became the neighborhoods of choice. And, when it came to finding an alternative to the high cost living in some of New York City’s more expensive neighborhoods, St. George was left out in the cold.

A trip down to St. George reveals some of the unique character of this community - and it truly is a great place to live. Colonials, Tudors, art deco apartments, and newly constructed condos are part of the housing stock here. However, the one advantage over many communities (yes, even those new “in places” around town), is the panoramic view afforded to the residents of whom have taken residence here. Quite frankly, there is no single community within the city limits that can afford someone the ability to take in the skyline from Bayonne New Jersey, past Jersey City and lower Manhattan, right down to the mouth of New York Harbor, all standing at ground level.

The commercial area lies along Hyatt Avenue and here you will also find the St. George Theater. From Belmont Place there is an extraordinary view of the St. Peters Church and almost reminds me of Vatican City on a much smaller scale.
