Grant City

Grant City is a small, quiet neighborhood located in Staten Island's East Shore. Like its neighbors New Dorp, Todt Hill, and Dongan Hills, Grant City is popular with commuters given its proximity to the string of Staten Island Railway train stations that runs through the area. It's also located just 10 minutes from the Verrazano Bridge entrance from the Staten Island Expressway.
