High Rock Neighborhood Summary
High Rock owes some of its seclusion to the massive High Rock Park, situated to the east of the small neighborhood. High Rock Park is an unexpected surprise within the Five Burroughs, one of the only places you can go in New York City where you'll see nothing but trees for miles around. Many prominent historical figures have occupied the park, including the Vanderbilts, but these days, the park has been designated "forever wild", with all 2,500 acres serving as a National Environmental Education Landmark. High Rock is also where the Greenbelt Conservancy's headquarters are located, and it is, by far, the best place to visit on Staten Island in order to get back in touch with nature. Hundreds of varieties of flora and fauna call the park home, giving visitors unparalleled access to stunning natural vistas from the park's six walking trails.
