While it may be part of New York City, Prince’s Bay, a neighborhood on the South Shore of Staten Island, has the feel of a suburban area. Princess Bay features many upscale family-style houses and several parks with fields for football, baseball, and soccer; children’s playgrounds; running trails; and dog parks. The revitalization of the waterfront has played a huge role in making Prince’s Bay one of the more affluent areas on the South Shore. Prince’s Bay is home to a public elementary and middle school and the South Campus of Staten Island University Hospital. The neighborhood is boarded by Huguenot to the north, Raritan Bay to the south, and Pleasant Plains to the west. Italian food is the dominant cuisine offered in the restaurants of Prince’s Bay. An array of pizza and pasta places can be found on Amboy Road, including Domenico’s Pizzeria, Fratelli, and Amici Pizza. There are also a number of independent and chain markets in the neighborhood. Top Tomato, Labella Marketplace, and Pathmark are just a few of the stores in the area where residents can shop for groceries. Princes Bay began life as a fishing village, and was known for its oysters, which were featured on menus at prominent seafood restaurants on both sides of the pond. Residents of Prince’s Bay can reach most other parts of the borough via the Staten Island Railway. The area is also served the S55, S56, and X23 buses which travel along Seguine Avenue; the S59 and S78 buses which run on Hylan Boulevard; and the X22 express bus at the Pleasant Plains Park and Ride.
