With parks, beaches, and downright cinematic ferry service to Manhattan, Staten Island is a great place to live. There’s something for everyone, from condos to suburban-style houses, in an array of neighborhoods. (Plus, you know you want to be just like Saturday Night Live’s Pete Davidson, aka “The King of Staten Island.”) Here are 5 great Staten Island homes that underscore this often-overlooked borough’s value and attraction.

We start our tour of Staten Island homes in style. This move-in ready ranch checks all the boxes, starting with its large corner lot. The new kitchen features stone counters and stainless appliances, and both bathrooms have been gut renovated. A full, finished basement doubles the space, while a nicely groomed yard expands the fun outdoors. Plus, there’s a wood-burning fireplace and an attached garage.
Our second Staten Island home is in West Brighton, on the island’s North Shore. With almost 2,000 square feet, this remodeled beauty marries original details with a modern makeover. The new kitchen boasts marble counters, a farmhouse sink, and a dishwasher. There’s lots more to love, too, including arched doorways inside and incredible curb appeal outside.
Next up is a semi-attached townhouse that brings a lot to the table. A den adds flex space to the 2-bedroom layout. And the oversized kitchen opens to a dining area. In addition, a big bonus awaits outdoors: a heated saltwater plunge pool! It’s fenced in and surrounded by decking, with a patio for gatherings. An attached garage makes this Staten Island home even more appealing.
We end our tour of Staten Island homes with two great listings in Saint George. The neighborhood is home to the Staten Island Ferry terminal as well as a lovely waterfront esplanade. First up is this alluring corner unit with 1,100 square feet of space. A recent remodel delivers knockout finishes in the kitchen and bathrooms. The building has a rooftop that overlooks the harbor, as well as parking, laundry, and landscaped grounds.
Last, but definitely not least, is this loft-like waterfront apartment at Bay Street Landing. The converted warehouse offers grand dimensions and massive windows overlooking the harbor. This 1-bedroom spans a generous 1,100 square feet, with columns and 10-foot ceilings. The building features laundry, parking, a gym, and even tennis courts. All for $535K. It’s enough to really get you thinking, huh?
