Tottenville Beach is part of the southernmost neighborhood of Staten Island, in New York City, USA. Tottenville Beach is the part of Tottenville that is south and east of Hylan Boulevard. It is the newest part of Tottenville. It was largely undeveloped up until the 1990s, and today is the home of many Russian immigrants. It is exclusively residential, and is bordered on the south and west by Conference House Park. Page Avenue is usually considered the northeastern boundary of Tottenville Park and also that of all of Tottenville.

Points of interest[edit]

While the beach that the area is named for is not popular with swimmers or sunbathers, it is nonetheless a popular place for fishing.

Several hotels dotted the shoreline in the area during the first half of the 20th century, but currently (2013) the only commercial establishment in the entire area is the "Coral Bay Cafe" at 722 Rockaway Street.

Transportation[edit]

There are no buses or trains that run through Tottenville Beach, but the S59 and S78 local buses and the X17, X22, and X22A express buses run along Hylan Boulevard, which is a few blocks away in Tottenville.[1]
