Bulls Head is a district in Staten Island's central west region, one of the city's five municipalities. It shares boundaries with Graniteville to the north, Westerleigh to the north, Willowbrook to the east, New Springville to the south, and Bloomfield to the west.

The neighborhood's center junction of Victory Boulevard and Richmond Avenue is where the neighborhood got its moniker from a tavern from the 18th century that had a sign with a bull's head on it. Phoenixville was another name for the Bulls Head neighborhood. This pub served as the regional center for the Tories, or supporters of the British throne, during the American Revolution. Bulls Head and the neighboring communities, such as Graniteville to the north and Willowbrook to the east, were predominately made up of farms as recently as the early 1960s. The inauguration of the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge in 1964, which allowed for the growth of residential areas, resulted in rapid change.
