STATEN ISLAND AS A COMMUNITY

Richmond University Medical Center is located in a residential area along the North Shore of Staten Island. The community itself maintains a unique flavor, close to the activity of Manhattan, yet with a country-like atmosphere of parks, wooded areas and small town living. Unlike many other sections of New York City, Staten Island has an abundance of good neighborhood private and public schools where stable, high quality teaching skills provide for a strong and diversified educational system.

Opportunities for relaxed family life and individual recreation are in great supply with the availability of boating, horseback riding, the Staten Island Zoo, nature trails, historical tours, golf courses, tennis courts, and a variety of playing fields.

The excitement and flavor of Manhattan are only a brief ferryboat ride across the Hudson River channel, or a short drive over the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge, while the Jersey Shore is just a few hours away via Staten Island's three New Jersey crossings: the Goethals Bridge, the Bayonne Bridge and the Outerbridge Crossing. You'll enjoy living in Staten Island and working at Richmond University Medical Center.
