St George is located in the northern tip of Staten Island, the part that is closest to Manhattan. It is probably the part of this borough that most tourists see, simply because of its close proximity to the famous Staten Island Ferry. Within the Ferry’s terminal, there are many little cafes and newsstands frequented by commuters. It is also the first stop on the Staten Island Railway. The residential architecture here has a distinctly Victorian feel.
Outside of the travel points, visitors can stop by the St. George Theatre, a former movie palace which now hosts a variety of live shows. The Richmond County Ballpark is located nearby. It is home to a minor league baseball team known as the Staten Island Yankees.
Perhaps the most artistically significant aspect of this neighborhood is the Snug Harbor Cultural Center. It houses the Staten Island Children’s Museum, their Greek Revival-style Music Hall, and even a botanical garden.
