Today we will be breaking down all the history about the Staten Island neighborhood, Rosebank. This neighborhood is home to the North Shore & the zip code 10305. One of the five boroughs of New York City's Staten Island is home to the area known as Rosebank. It shares boundaries with Clifton and Arrochar.

The area appears to have been known as Peterstown, Clifton, and the Village of Edgewater before receiving the name "Rosebank" in the early 1880s. The region was the "Newport, Rhode Island" of New York before 1880 and was filled with opulent homes. Mansions on the coast and inland belonged to some of the wealthiest families in the nation. It was constructed and continues to exist next to the Alice Austen House, the summer home of the New York Yacht Club. St. John's Episcopal Church was constructed and frequented by the Townsends, Aspinwalls, and Vanderbilts.

Smaller plots were then created from the large farms and estates, and shortly after 1880, Italian immigrants started to settle in the region. The presence of the Garibaldi Memorial in the neighborhood serves as an example of how their ancestors have remained the majority ethnic group there.

The Catholic schools on Staten Island, including St. Mary School in Rosebank, are run by the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of New York. St. Mary's had 224 pupils in 2011, 90 percent of the school's capacity, in its last year. Rosebank's St. Joseph's School, which had 167 kids enrolled, shut down in 2013.
