Eltingville is a beautiful neighborhood. Before I moved to SI, and before I became a real estate agent, I researched the Staten Island area for a home for my family. We now live in Arden Heights which is 5 minutes from Eltingville by car but we take many walks since the neighborhoods are so close. My kids go to school at PS 42 (in Eltingville) and the school is amazingly family oriented with all of its extra curricular activities and daily school activities. Below are a couple of websites that detail the neighborhoods.
