Anyone from Staten Island?

Is anyone here from Staten Island, NY or lives there currently? I'll be moving there in May and was wondering if I could get some guidance on where to live or what pats are safe. Thanks in advance

Born and raised (I don't live there anymore though). Why are you moving there? What are your questions specifically?

Im working at Staten Island uniV hospital for at least three years. I just wanted to know if there were areas I should avoid renting and any tips/advice you have for living there.

Staten Island generally gets more ghetto as you go north (with the exception of Todt Hill) and nicer as you head towards the South Shore. You could pretty much live anywhere in the borough and get to work easily, although the SI Expressway can be pretty busy during rush hour, as it's the main road to head into the rest of NYC.

What are your concerns other than neighborhoods to avoid? Are you planning to rent/buy? Are you concerned with being bored (Stat is a bit of a boring borough)? Do you have a family/kids?
