Oakwood Heights & Oakwood Beach Homes

The neighborhood of Oakwood is framed by Ebbitts Street to the north, the Atlantic Ocean to the east, Great Kills Park to the south of town, and the Staten Island Railway to the west.

There is an active bus service (bus S57) that travels along Amboy Road, while the S78 and S79 buses hit the route along Hylan Boulevard. The first rail line of what is now known as the Staten Island Railway first opened in 1860 - during the genesis and subsequent heyday of the railroad boom in the U.S. - and served to connect Tompkinsville (Vanderbilt Ferry landing) to Tottenville. Presently, the Staten Island Railway provides local service between Saint George and Tottenville.

Up until the mid-20th century, Oakwood Heights was mostly farms and pasture land, while Oakwood Beach was a resort area. Today the lush rural and urban landscapes here serve as prime location for family homes.

Real estate in Oakwood, New York, is loosely divided into several distinct areas - a luxury home section where large, spacious homes dominate, and areas where single-family homes are the norm.

Recreation in Oakwood

Most homes in Oakwood are located near parks, green space, and recreation sites. Points of interest include Monsignor Farrell High School and a clutch of historic cemeteries on the neighborhood's southwest side. The Frederick Douglass Memorial Park is an historic African-American burial ground, and Richmond Town is located to the west of Oakwood.

Amundsen Circle (otherwise known as the Captain Roald Amundsen Plaza), and the 4.5-mile (7.2 km) Amundsen Trail, were both designated in honour of Roald Amundsen, a Norwegian explorer who was the first to sail the Northwest Passage. The park was acquired by the city in 1928 - the year of his presumed death after the search plane he was in disappeared during a search for another downed plane.
