Spotlight on Rossville Staten Island
Once a farming community, Rossville is the hot real estate destination these days, on Staten Island’s South Shore. High quality homes from semi-detached houses and townhouses to luxury homes and condominiums make this a draw for those seeking the best of today’s real estate in a warm and safe community.
Planned developments and beautiful condominiums are common in Rossville – which means private streets, parks, clubhouses, community pools and recreational activities are plentiful. Despite the modern developments, Rossville keeps its historical roots alive; five structures in the neighborhood have historical preservation status, two of which are churches. Many families still reside in the community, who are descended from the original settlers of the area.
The close-knit Rossville community creates a warm, safe suburban setting. Express buses and access to major roadways keep it connected with the rest of Staten Island but the hustle and bustle drops away on the quiet streets. Excellent schools and plenty of outdoor recreation make this a great spot for home buyers looking to raise a family.
Clay Pit Ponds State Park Preserve offers horseback riding lessons, and Bloomingdale Park has sports ball fields and almost 100 acres of preserved land with trails. South Shore Golf Club, an 18-hole municipal course, sits at the eastern edge of the neighborhood.
