History of New Brighton

New Brighton is a veritable history lesson in Staten Island architecture. The properties are a striking mix of Gothic, Second-Empire, and Queen Anne Victorian houses built in the late 19th century, many still an pristine condition, telling the tale of the wealthy Manhattanites who used the neighborhood as their exclusive stamping grounds. St. Peter's Cathedral, built in 1844 and expanded in 1891, is another important historical landmark in New Brighton located on St. Mark's Place. While the neighborhood saw a reduction in population after the construction of the Verrazano Narrows Bridge, New Brighton's popularity is once again on the rise with those looking to live in a neighborhood with a rich historical and cultural fabric as well as close proximity to the St. George Ferry Terminal.
