Often referred to as "Little Sri Lanka", the neighborhood of Tompkinsville doesn't shy away from embracing its multicultural roots. The streets of the sleepy area abound with Sri Lankan cuisine, grocery stores, and general stores that serve as a reminder of the immigrants who call Tompkinsville their home. The neighborhood is located along the eastern shore of Staten Island and is considered part of the North Shore/Greater St. George region.
While many neighborhoods like Tompkinsville are a mix of stand-alone single-family homes as well as large housing projects, Tompkinsville is unique in that there are no housing projects within its borders, leaving room for the eye-catching architecture that remains standing from the 19th and early 20th centuries.
Single family and multifamily/duplexes are on the real estate market in Tompkinsville. Many are affordable and convenient to amenities and public transportation, making the neighborhood the perfect choice for those longing to experience the diversity, culture, and convenience of Tompkinsville.
Tompkinsville's namesake is Daniel D. Tompkins, the United States Vice President back in 1816. Tompkins was behind the construction of a dock on Victory Boulevard that offered service via steam ferry across the bay to Manhattan, the first of its kind establishing passenger service to and from Manhattan. Later, Tompkinsville served as a U.S. Navy Frontier Base.
