The North Shore of Staten Island is certainly experiencing a renaissance thanks to the commitment of private developers and the support from elected officials and the community. While much of the attention is being focused on the big four projects: URBY, Empire Outlets, The New York Wheel and Lighthouse Point, smaller projects are providing people, young and old, with the opportunity to rent apartments within walking distance of these exciting projects. Local developers like George Christo have been quietly investing in the North Shore for years, lovingly turning worn out buildings into chic apartments while preserving their historic character. Their investment into the North Shore is attracting noted restaurateurs who want to have their roots firmly planted in Staten Island ahead of the influx of visitors who are expected to make their way up from the St. George ferry terminal to experience all that our borough has to offer.
