The neighbourhood

Safe* Safe* Safe~~

I love I can get to LOWER Manhattan in 45 minutes during rush hour.. and not pay NYC prices to live.

I love all the trees, trees, trees, grass, peaceful neighborhood; buses around corner, short walk to train to the ferry boat; hawks and seagulls flying overhead; and squirrel galore.. a piece of peace in one of the 5 boroughs of NYC. Top schools too.

Staten Island has a Zoo, Snug Harbor, Yankees Minor Team, Beaches Galore, parkland to walk, and Chinese Scholar Gardens.

Getting around

Buses to Manhattan right around the corner; or walk to the nearby train and take the ferry to Manhattan (which I prefer).. nice ride on the water and seagulls flying overhead. (pass the Statue of Liberty, etc) Great views~

Everyone calls me by my nickname 'Emma'. I live alone.. since..

I have 2 grown sons, 32 and 20 years old.. on their own at college/work studying to be a Pharmacist and the other Liberal Arts for now. :)) I'm very PROUD of them :) .. and adore their future wives too.

I'm a Buddhist and I love meeting people from other states and countries. :)....(and now also just started doing this through AirBnB too. )

It is very nice providing this service of having people here for work, internships, school or vacation. :) ..and the income is useful to keep maintaining living here in NYC :) and my sons' educations. A win-win for all with Airbnb :))

New York City is an ideal place to live. I enjoy living in Staten Island due to all the nature and birds and trees around my house.. and yet can easily get to Lower Manhattan in about 45 to 55 minutes during 'rush hour' yet longer depending on time of day by reliable Public Transportation. (mid-Manhattan add another 15 minutes).

I do not drive and enjoy such conveniences~

My interests are my freelance work, studying various topics of interest, Philosophy, Taoism, walking for miles, nature trails on Staten Island, cooking, baking, meeting friends in Manhattan for lunch, spiritual groups in NYC, and books, books, books, and great coffee.
