Living In: Randall Manor


Share Info About Randall Manor
Randall Manor is a neighborhood located in the borough of Staten Island. This beautiful neighborhood is located on the North Shore of Staten Island. The neighborhood is bound by Bard Avenue in the West, Henderson Avenue to the North and Forest Avenue to the South. Living in Randall Manor will allow one to follow a rich history while being provided with a comfortable living space for the future. Randall Manor was named after Captain Robert Richard Randall, the founder of Sailors Snug Harbor. Randall Manor is one of the few affluent enclaves on Staten Island not situated upon the backbone of hills that run diagonally across the island from northeast to southwest, which include Emerson Hill and Todt Hill. Development in the area had largely been completed by the time the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge opened in 1964, so Randall Manor has been almost unaffected by the construction boom that accompanied the bridge's opening. Possessing the advantage of being located in proximity to the St. George ferry terminal, Randall Manor remains one of the most desirable and attractive locations on the island. In Randall Manor, New Yorkers might enjoy exploring land like a sailor; checking out a true galley kitchen and watching the tugboats go by at waterfront restaurants. The Snug Harbor Cultural Center & Botanical Garden is a huge attraction for local residence along with those coming for a visit. Initially built in the 1800s as a home for retired sailors, Snug Harbor Cultural Center & Botanical Garden is said to be the largest ongoing adaptive reuse project in America. The 23 historical buildings, nine botanical gardens and 10 acres of wetlands—set on an 83-acre campus—are the elements of a regional arts center where history, architecture, visual art, theater, dance, music and environmental science provide dynamic experiences for all ages. The venue, a Smithsonian affiliate, is home to the Newhouse Center for Contemporary Art, the Noble Maritime Collection, Staten Island Children's Museum; the arts school Art Lab and the Staten Island Museum. The Noble Maritime Collection might be off the beaten path of the typical New York City museum circuit, but this Staten Island collection dedicated to the maritime art and artifacts of John A. Noble is no less fascinating than its better-known families. The artist was noted for his drawings and paintings of life on New York Harbor, as well as his stockpile of ship models and other curiosities. Perhaps the star attraction is Noble's art studio-cum-houseboat, which was fashioned from the remnants of larger ships. Randall Manor is also just a short trip from the Staten Island Zoo. There are several schools in the area in Randall Manor. The nearest public schools are Curtis High School, and Ralph R. McKee Career and Technical High School. Today, Randall Manor is one of Staten Island most charming and character-laden neighborhoods as you will find in New York City. Streets are graced with maples, and oak trees that tower over the community streets placing it under a blanket of shade. Living in Randall Manor presents one with a pleasant and desirable living environment.
