the northeastern part, st george, stapleton, new brighton....it starts from south beach and on to the northeast, south beach isnt dangerous tho, and if staten IS the safest its because its the least populated, under half a million people.

Most of Staten Island with the exception of Stapleton, Clifton, or Mariners Harbor is pretty safe. The commute to Lower Manhattan is about 20 min on the ferry plus the bus ride or train ride to the ferry. You can also drive and pay for parking at the lot by the ferry. Driving to Manhattan from Staten Island takes awhile you have to go through Bayonne NJ and then to the Holland Tunnel. I advise living in South Beach or around Fort Wadsworth for a shorter commute time to the ferry and it is also near the VZ Bridge to Brooklyn.

Todt Hill (that's pronounced like "toad," in case you go there and don't want to sound silly). The catch is that it's also the most exclusive district in the whole borough. Affordability could be an issue.

It depends on what you call safe. Unfortunately I live on the south shore. The prescription drug problem with the teenagers here is horrendous. There have been 6 shootings and 4 homicides on Staten Island since last week. They are on the north shore. There is a lot of mafia here. Those who say the mafia dont bother you are wrong. Peddling drugs to our youth is wrong, period.

I am trying to figure out how to relocate. I grew up in Queens and made a mistake coming here.

What's your budget? That's a consideration as well.

I think the safest areas are on the south shore, like prince's bay and tottenville.
