STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — The most basic definition of a neighborhood is the generated social interaction among people living near one another. Neighborhoods are a social unit larger than households and not directly under the control of a government structure.
New York City is mostly a mosaic of neighborhoods. Although they have changed a great deal —i.e., their shifting ethnic composition, etc.— the essential elements to raise families to respect and protect each other still are very valid.
Rosebank is located on the east shore of Staten Island. From the shore line, an unbeatable view of the Narrows and Manhattan make its waterfront the visual checkpoint for any vessels entering New York.
