Home to the Lenape tribe of American Indians for thousands of years, New Dorp or “New Village” as it was called by the Dutch, played a played a pivotal role in the Revolutionary War. It was the inspiration for “New Dorp, New York,” a song by the British pop group SBTRKET. Bordered by New Dorp Beach to the east, Oak Wood to the south, Todt Hill to the west and Grant City to the north, New Dorp is an ethnically diverse, stable middle-class section, which was once home to members of the Vanderbilt family, who are buried nearby in the Moravian Cemetery. A retail destination for many Staten Islanders, New Dorp has five shopping centers on Hylan Plaza, anchored by supermarkets and chain stores. New Dorp Lane offers a selection of ethnic restaurants like Brioses, an Italian favorite, to the newly renovated Taste of India. It has high-end dress shops, a public library, and two artisanal bakeries: Mother Mousse, known for its fanciful wedding cakes, and Dominck’s , which is said to serve the best cannolis in town. Two spas, A.F. Bennet and Blue Velvet offer well-priced massages and other beauty services. Old New Dorp, a pristine pocket, right off New Dorp Lane, is lined with quaint, affordably priced private homes. Further east, there’s a small beach and a public park with multiple playing fields, good public schools and access to public transportation. One of the most beautiful homes in New Dorp is also one of the most recognizable settings in cinema history: The Corleone family compound is located at 110 Longfellow Avenue on Emerson Hill. New Dorp is served by the Staten Island Railways and has local buses and express buses to Manhattan. By Fern Flamberg
