St. Vincent Hospital, now called University Hospital of S.I, is on Bard Avenue. That area is called "Castleton Corners." It has very nice homes, nice restaurants, etc.

However, it has a city project, with many rowdy people. Stay away from Richmond Terrace, which is residential and industrial, and has a bad element of people.

Interracial couple (yeah, old post): steer clear of the South Shore and you'll be OK. Even on the South Shore, I doubt you'd run into many problems, but you may get some people looking at you funny and/or some moron saying some dumb stuff. The North Shore is pretty diverse, though, you'll be fine around there. The North Shore and South Shore of Staten Island sometimes feel like two different boroughs.

The area around St. Vincent's Hospital is, I'm pretty sure, actually West Brighton. It's generally pretty nice, though there are a few dicey areas nearby. Use appropriate judgment and you should be fine.

Is not called University Hospital of S.I., that is another hospital that has nothing to do with St. Vincent.
St. Vincent is now Richmond University Medical Center (RUMCSI), http://www.rumcsi.org/
I live in this area, is a nice area.

I live on a 99% Italian American street in Queens and as a Filipino American guy, have never had any problems. In fact, people are out of their way nice to me even though I'm a minority in their neighborhood. I'm not sure if Italian Americans are any different on SI, but I think they get a bad rep for being racist or xenophobic. I don't understand how anyone can be racist and live in NYC, you'd have to be shaking your head at every other person, makes no sense.

Italian-Americans in the South Shore section of Staten Island, are not any different than the ones living in Queens. This section of SI has very few apartment buildings, and is mostly one or two- family houses.

They welcome anyone that moves here and BEHAVES APPROPRIATELY. They would not welcome anyone hanging out in front of their house or apartment, with a beer on his/her hand, blasting music, and disturbing the peace, after 11pm., even if you are Italian!
