Living in Tottenville, Staten Island all my life. Great place to live. Extremely family oriented and it has a small town feel even though its in the most surburban residential borough of New York City.
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.
