A hub for commercial development
The East Shore is the waterside region running along the East Coast of Staten Island. It includes land that stretches from the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge in the north to Great Kills Park in the south. Residents and visitors are often in walking distance of the Staten Island Railway, which terminates at the ferry. Residents and visitors alike support businesses along commercial corridors: Hylan Boulevard, which runs north and south, is the most developed, while Midland Avenue, Sand Lane, Seaview Avenues, and Father Capodanno, which runs parallel to the beach, have small retail and commercial strips.
