Charleston is the name of a neighborhood of New York City's borough of Staten Island. It is located on the island's South Shore, with Tottenville to the south, Pleasant Plains to the East, Rossville to the north, and the Arthur Kill to the west. Many locals may still remember Charleston as Kreischerville. With the arrival of Balthasar Kreischer (1813 to 1886), a Bavarian immigrant and founder of the Kreischer Brick Manufactory, the area became known as Kreischerville as his business success imparted growth to the surrounding area. Balthasar Kreischer had three mansions built on Kreischer Hill, one of which stands to this day and is designated a historical landmark. Recent development in the area has spawned a new shopping corridor along Veterans Road West, including Staten Island's first and only Target and third Home Depot, among many other stores. Also, a second shopping center along Veterans Road West has opened hosting an Ethan Allen franchise and a variety of other stores.
