Tottenville Reviews

Living on Staten Island has gotten less appealing as the years go on. The biggest turn off for me is the cost of living. You are paying city prices for most things but not getting the benefits of living in a city (i.e. Walkability, easy public transportation, interesting amenities, etc.) You have to pay, no matter what, to leave the island to get anywhere whether it be the other boroughs or New Jersey. Being a democrat, it is also very hard as this is the only republican borough in NYC and they are very vocal about their stances on certain things. The people are not the best either; it is very rare that you have a positive interaction here.

I grew up right outside of Tottenville. Then it was just a small town where you knew everyone's name and everyone was friendly. There was one grocery store in town and not much else to do. Now Tottenville is booming. There are restaurants, pharmacies, grocery stores, jewelry stores, clothing stores, you name it, Tottenville's got it.
Living in New York, this skews my perception of crime as living in a big city there is more of it than other areas of the country but as far as comparing to the other boroughs, safety is pretty decent here. The biggest issue you face on Staten Island is drug (use and very high incidence of overdose) and assault.
