Downtown Staten Island

Downtown Staten Island

Tucked next to the iconic Staten Island Ferry terminal are the neighborhoods of St. George, Tompkinsville, and Stapleton that make up Downtown Staten Island. Connected and easily walkable, each “town” has its own distinct history and vibe.

Stroll through St. George to visit an historic theater and a unique comic shop before taking in incredible waterfront views and stopping for some soul food or a slice of classic New York pizza.

Continue down Bay Street into Tompkinsville to tour a craft brewery and visit a book cafe.

Keep walking and you’ll be in Stapleton, home to antiques stores, an indoor skatepark, a makerspace, and some of the finest and most eclectic restaurants in New York City.

Whether you’re a long-time resident, new to the area, or just here for a visit — this is your guide to all Downtown Staten Island has to offer.
