Tucked away on the NorthEastern shore, spanning the length of Ward Avenue - framed by Victory Boulevard and Cebra Avenue, you will find an eclectic collection of homes that can only be described as architectural eye candy; A hidden enclave called Ward Hill.

If you are looking for a good workout, the winding roads and steep hills will get you into shape quickly. Walking this small neighborhood is the best way to appreciate all that it has to offer. Many stairways are also found in the area to get your up or down streets, such as the 129-step stairway which goes from Tompkins Circle all the way down to Victory Boulevard.

A mix of old and new await you as you stroll by everything from post-modern ranches, whimsical cottages, stately colonials, and opulent Victorians, all lovingly restored and maintained.

If you’re lucky enough to be invited into one of these elegant homes, you’ll feel even luckier when you take in the incredible view that they get to see every day. The best views are on Ward Hill - Unparalleled Panoramic views from Jersey City to the full span of the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge. Each view is unattainable anywhere else in New York City!

All of this grandeur and architectural extravagance would be absent from our Island if it was not for the one man that the neighborhood was named after; In 1835, Caleb Tompkins Ward, the nephew of Governor Daniel D. Tompkins at the time, built a monumental porticoed mansion, 200 feet above sea level, on the northernmost hill on Staten Island. A perfectly majestic location in a time when North shore of Staten Island was a fashionable resort for wealthy New Yorkers. The Ward Mansion is documented in its city landmark designation report to be one of the finest examples of Greek revival architecture in All of New York City!

Ward Hill is located just steps away from all local public transportation, along with easy access to the Staten Island Ferry, Which originated from the Ward family. Schools, hospitals, shopping, and local restaurants are as convenient as you can get. For this ethnically diverse and economically singular community That hides in plain site.
