St. George Reviews
I love living here in St. George . Like most downtowns areas it is especially special because the rest of Staten Island is more desolate and suburban . Here I have the best of busy city vibes mixed with beautiful nature and hills and a beautiful view of Manhattan's skyline . The neighborhood is more close knit than those of the over crowded Brooklyn or queens . There's a lot of local restaurants and bars around where everyone knows everyone and run by independent business owners.
Most people that I know in the youthful age group just work dead end jobs to bring some sort of income into their pockets. The adults who received education and specialize in fields are mostly working, but I often hear complaints about how it is hard to manage their budgets and still live the lives they want to live for themselves and their children
In the general area its a quiet neighborhood with the few bodegas and a Laundromat. Commuting wise I have to take a bus all around Staten Island and then take the ferry over to Manhattan. I find this to be an inconvenience; I would prefer to live in the city instead of Staten Island. I am more accustomed to the city life than a quiet and simple neighborhood
