Who We Are

This Way on Bay publishes information that is valuable for residents, local visitors & tourists that live or visit Downtown Staten Island.

Where We Are

Our neighborhood is known by three names each with its own distinction: The North Shore, Downtown Staten Island & the Bay Street Corridor.

The North Shore encompasses all our neighborhoods including South Beach, Fort Wadsworth, Shore Acres,  Rosebank, Clifton, Stapleton, Tompkinsville, St George, New Brighton, Randall Manor & Port Richmond.

Downtown Staten Island boundaries vary according who you are talking to. The one thing for sure is that its focal point is St George, right off the ferry and continues left past Tompkinsville, Stapleton & Clifton and right past New Brighton, Randall Manor ending at Port Richmond.

The Bay Street Corridor was first dubbed by nyc describing a 14-block stretch zoned for manufacturing in Tompkinsville and Stapleton bordered North to South by Victory Blvd & Sand Street and East to West by Van Duzer Street & the Staten Island Rapid Transit Railroad. We say that it includes all of Bay Street two mile stretch between the Boat & the Bridge. The Boat being the world famous Staten Island Ferry and the Bridge being the Verrazano Bridge, the longest span Bridge in the World.

Our Goals

  1. Providing resources for residences, local visitors & tourists to include:where to eat, where to visit, where to shop & emergency information.
  2. Educate local businesses & residences to the positive effect purchasing goods and services has on your local economy
  3. Educate local businesses & residences to the positive effects that taking responsibility (self reliance) for the cleanliness & safety in your neighborhood has on the local economy. A clean neighborhood is a safe neighborhood. A safe neighborhood brings more residences and businesses that support the local economy. A strong local economy increases revenues and property values.
  4. Educate potential business and real estate investors as to the benefits our neighborhood provides.

We Encourage Self Reliance, Teamwork and Shopping Locally. We are committed to changing the perception positively along the North Shore.
