The seaside community of Prince's Bay is one of the most modern and sought-after neighborhoods in the South Shore of Staten Island. Most of the neighborhood is populated with houses built within the past 30 years, and limited development has kept Prince's Bay a charming small ocean town where many houses come with large pieces of land. Prince's Bay was once a bustling fishing and oystering village back in the 19th-century. In fact, Prince's Bay oysters were often found on the menus of some of the finest eateries in Manhattan. Over time the community evolved into a summer and second home neighborhood, and now, it's a secluded getaway far from the city's crowds. Like many of its neighbors located along the Staten Island Railway, Prince's Bay came to be after the construction of the Prince's Bay train station at the corner of Westbury Avenue and Seguine Avenue. Likewise, most of the neighborhood's stores, restaurants, and other businesses are situated near the station. However, to the south toward the waterfront, the atmosphere is more like that of a secluded oceanside hamlet. Acres upon acres of park land and preserves take up much of Prince's Bay, including the Lemon Creek Tidal Wetlands Area, the Wolfes Pond Park, and Bloessers Pond State Wetlands.
Prince's Bay is close to a number of public and private schools for K-12 students, as well as institutes of higher learning, such as Wagner College, St. John's University, and the College of Staten Island.
Prince's Bay residents prefer to rely on both their own cars as well as public transportation in order to travel around and off the island. The SIR makes frequent stops at the Prince's Bay station, providing easy access to the St. George ferry terminal. The Outerbridge Crossing to New Jersiey is only five minutes away from the middle of Prince's Bay, and the West Shore Expressway entrance is also just a few minutes from the neighborhood. In addition to local buses, an express bus to Manhattan stops on Seguine Avenue, making for an easy, car-free commute for Prince's Bay residents.
