105 Water Street, Staten Island, NY, 10304
Downtown Staten Island is the place for business. It is located along the Staten Island Railroad with stations at Clifton, Stapleton, Tompkinsville and St. George. It is serviced by every MTA bus in route to the St. George Ferry Terminal which is located minutes away from the Downtown Staten Island corridor.
The corridor has a rich history as it was the area where the Lenape Indians first settled, making way later for the Dutch and finally the first Governors of New York.
The military always had a presence along the Downtown waterfront whether at Ft. Wadsworth or the US Coast Guard which had it's first base at the site that is now being developed by Triangle Equities as Lighthouse Point which is adjacent to the St. George Ferry and is now moved to the waterfront in Rosebank near Shore Acres.
Woolworths Department store was the anchor retailer in Stapleton located on Water Street adjacent to the old Staten Island Savings Bank lining Tapan Park. While the area has changed throughout the years, the Bay Street corridor remains one of Staten Island's most traveled retail corridor with small mom and pop shops weathering the test of time to serve the neighborhood.
