Rosebank Neighborhood Summary

Located within a narrow strip of land sandwiched between Clifton and Shore Acres, Rosebank, once a predominantly Italian neighborhood, over the decades has become a multicultural hub attracting many young families. It's no wonder: Rosebank is situated at the base of the Verrazano Narrows Bridge, providing residents with handy access to Brooklyn and beyond. This influx of youthful energy and the influence of different cultures created a housing market with a little bit of everything, from old fashioned townhouses and connected multifamily housing units to renovated single-families with all the latest features.

Rosebanks historic and attractive architecture consists of gingerbread Victorians, renovated townhouses, and well-constructed Colonials, not to mention a myriad of affordable multifamily housing units with comfortable interiors. Once you visit Rosebank, you'll see why it continues to draw in new families every year. Will your family be one of them?

History of Rosebank

Part of Rosebank's popularity is its museums and historical district. The Garibaldi-Meucci Museum on Tompkins Avenue that honors the memories of Giuseppe Garibaldi, and Italian military hero in mid-to-late 19th century, and Italian inventor Antonio Meucci, who invented the electromagnetic telephone, pre-dating Alexander Graham Bell's work by several decades. The Alison Austen House Museum near the waterfront houses the work of prolific photographer Alison Austen during the early days of the 20th century. The neighborhood is also home to an historic district on Amity Street, where Our Lady of Mount Carmel Grotto remains open to visitors on a daily basis.
