It's a great place to live! St. George has an attractive mix of affordable co-ops and nice old houses on tree-lined streets. St. George is an affordable alternative to neighborhoods like Park Slope and Williamsburg. It is Staten Island's most urban-feeling area, and has found new popularity after years of decline and high crime, aggravated by the exodus of major public institutions like the City University campus and a Department of Motor Vehicles office and the retailers that depended on them. St. George is home to the 120th Police Precinct, Family Court, Supreme Court, Borough Hall, Curtis High School, and The St. George Branch of The NY Public Library. There are also lots of small independent restaurants and bars. There is also a green market on the weekends. There is a Ballpark, home to the Staten Island Yankees Class A baseball team, and the St. George waterfront, where you can travel from Staten Island Ferry Terminal to Manhattan in about 25 minutes. There will be some exciting new improvements coming to the St. George area within the next year. The improvements will include new plants, trees, shrubs, 1900's era street lights, and decorative pavers all in the vicinity of the Ferry and Borough Hall including Bay St., Richmond Terrace, Stuyvesant Place, Hyatt St., and Schuyler St.. These improvements will make the area even more attractive to residents, business, commuters, and visitors to Staten Island.

St. George is hit or miss. Some areas are lovely and historic. Some areas have high crime. There is a big movement with the art scene in the area, and even an art school, Art Lab, on the grounds of Snug Harbor. Before you buy a home there, go see the area where the house is located and view it in the day and night time.

Local Staten Island Artist Scott Lobaido held a great show last August in the old Fishs Eddy warehouse at 139 Bay St. As the lights went out in the crowded warehouse the stage came alive as Scott performed live, creating another masterpiece before our eyes on a large clear flat glass canvass suspended from the ceiling. It was a great time, and further evidence that there is a lot going on in St. George these days.
