staten_island_zoo Barrett Park, which is now known as the Staten Island Zoo, is located in the neighborhood of West Brighton, near Clove Lake and Sunset Hill. It is situated between Clove Road, Broadway, and Glenwood Place.

In 1930, Julia Hardin willed this property to the City of New York, but under certain terms. These terms were that it would be named after Major Clarence T. Barrett, Hardin's brother-in-law; that it would not be used for a playground; and that her husband, Edward, would be allowed to continue to live in the house on the property. This site used to be the home of Major Clarence T. Barrett, which was where he also operated his plant nursery.

The Barretts were one of the more prominent families living on Staten Island. Clarence Barrett was able to…

Recreational facilities may be the leading factors which attract people to parks, but the real attraction is the nature.  In the community of Arden Heights, which is a name that has been given to the western section of Annadale, you will find the Arden Heights Woods.  In this area, you will find none of these facilities.  There are no sports fields or playgrounds.  You won't find any water fountains or places to barbecue.  That may just be the beauty of it, though, because you will find plenty of flora and fauna populating this gigantic park.

In Staten Island's Bluebelt, you will find the "Heart of Southeast Annadale". In 1972, the City of New York acquired 26 acres in this area. From the early 1960s, citizens had been concerned about this land and its environs, which had
been a paradise for abandoned vehicles. These Staten Islanders tried, for over three decades, to preserve the land. Over the years, as residents began to protect more and more of the surrounding area, more land was obtained by New York City. By 2001, the City had acquired well over 200 acres of land. Today, this land is between Arbutus Avenue and Barclay Avenue to the left and right, and Amboy Road and Hylan Boulevard above and below. It is known as Blue Heron Park.

The entrance to Blue Heron Park lies on Poillon Avenue, a…

Bunker Ponds Park consists of approximately thirty-two acres of natural habitat. It is located in the neighborhood of Huguenot, across from Intermediate School 7. The park is bordered by the streets of Hylan Boulevard, Huguenot sign1_400Avenue, Arbutus Avenue, and Chester Avenue, close to the Raritan Bay waterfront.

In 1896, William T. Davis and Charles W. Leng studied the area of the park for a map. On the map they referred to the area as Bunker Hill. While studying the area, they found many artifacts, such as arrowheads and spear points which determined that the area used to be part of a Lenape Indian settlement. In the late 20th century, the local community wanted to preserve the natural woodlands of this area and keep it free of development. After the local…

We have written about this house a few times now, but it seems nobody has grasped just how wonderful it is. A few months ago, we informed you of a price reduction on 44 Comfort Court, making is $639,000. It must not have been correctly updated to the website, though, since nobody could see how much of a bargain that was. Well now, the price has been reduced to $599,000. If there's anything better than a bargain, this is it.

You've heard the story: it's a Side-Hall Colonial in the neighborhood of Huguenot. Perhaps we didn't emphasize the grandness of this house, though. 44 Comfort Court is located on a private cul-de-sac, just off of Amboy Road.  The location of the house is possibly as wonderful as the house, itself.  You're right by a number of places…
