I've lived in this neighborhood for almost 17 years the street I live on is very safe I'm close to the hospital which is great this neighborhood has lovely restaurants like Panini Grill, Cafe Milano and others. The people in this neighborhood are very friendly . We have some lovely parks Clove Lakes Park ,Silver Lakes Park and Walker Park just to name a few. it's also close to the Staten Island Ferry and just arrived on the 44 bus to the Staten Island Mall. The schools in this neighborhood a very safe but I would have to say if you don't have to send your kid to PS 18 then don't that's only from experience they have done a lot with that school but just the area I'm not too fond about.

My neighborhood is the most peaceful and suburban environment I have stayed at. There are a wide variety of restaurants down the block and everything that from restaurants to plazas are located down the street. Additionally, my house resides in the corner of the neighborhood and it is the perfect location to view the sunrise and sunset each day. This is definitely considered a perfect neighborhood since it is right next to our incredible zoo and up the block, it is convenient to be able to get membership at the Y.M.C.A.
My neighborhood usually does not have much crime as it is usually quiet down the streets. However, there are some teenagers who do at times make ruckus outside of the neighborhood that may appear disruptive to our neighborhoods. This is the only complaint as crime is rare in our neighborhood and I usually feel that I am safe in such a neighborhood.
