Share Info About Castleton Corners
Castleton Corners is a small neighborhood located in the north shore area of Staten Island, one of the five boroughs of New York City. It is a relatively upscale area, with a large housing stock of detached single-family homes, mostly in the Colonial style, although there are also some Tudors, ranches, and townhomes. Bordered by Sunnyside to the east, West Brighton to the north, Westerleigh to the northwest, Meiers Corners to the southwest, and Todt Hill to the south, Castleton Corners is roughly shaped like an inverted “L”, with Victory Boulevard and Manor Road running through the center of the area. Victory Boulevard, particularly as it intersects with Manor Road, is the commercial center of the neighborhood, with many neighborhood eateries and shops for residents to patronize. Also known as Four Corners, Castleton Corners was also formerly known as Centerville. The neighborhood was later renamed Castleton Corners after the Castleton post office that opened in the neighborhood (the post office derived its name from Cassiltowne in County Kildare, Ireland, which was the birthplace of Thomas Dongan, the colonial governor of New York in 1682). Castleton Corners is conveniently situated in the northern portion of Staten Island. The Staten Island Expressway forms its southern border, so those who commute by car have an easy drive. Commuters who take the bus can catch the X12 or X42 express busses, or the S54, S61, S62, S66, S91, S92, or S93 local buses. One of the major attractions of Castleton Corners is Clove Lakes Park. Located at the eastern edge of the neighborhood, this protected, Forever Wild park offers valuable green space and a rich natural history to residents. The park contains Staten Island’s oldest living tree: a three hundred year-old tulip tree. The park also has a variety of lakes and ponds, as well as outcroppings of rocks, for nature fans. There are also more modern recreational amenities for visitors to enjoy, including multiple baseball diamonds, a soccer field, a basketball court, multiple playgrounds, a football field, and the outdoor Staten Island War Memorial Ice Skating Rink. Other amusements are located in the immediate vicinity of Castleton Corners. The Staten Island Zoo is immediately outside of the neighborhood’s eastern borders, just on the other side of Clove Road. Residents on the southern end of the neighborhood need only to cross the Staten Island Expressway to reach a sports park that includes both mini golf and go-karts. Students in Castleton Corners can either attend public school at P.S. 20 through grade five followed by I.S. 27 or I.S. 51 for grades six through eight, or they can pursue private education at St. Teresa’s through eighth grade. High school students attend the Susan E. Wagner High School, located just outside of the neighborhood.
