Living in Midland Beach
Renting a sleepy Midland Beach apartment locates you in one of Staten Island's quieter East Shore communities Just off the Lower Bay, this neighborhood used to be a bustling resort area. Those days are past, though. Happyland amusement park, which entertained late 19th century vacationers, is gone. The hotels and attractions and tourists are mostly only memories now, as well. According to Midland Beach residents, all this is for the best.
These days, the neighborhood boasts a two and a half mile boardwalk, a peaceful orange sand beach, and a reasonable cost of living. Vacation rentals have become year-round residences. Developers have been busy replacing older bungalows with newer, sturdier, and larger homes, too. Midland Beach is roughly bordered by Hylan and Graham boulevards, Miller Park, and the water.
Midland Beach Lifestyle and Entertainment
Midland Avenue is Midland Beach's main commercial street. It's got some shops, but not a ton. Most residents head out to nearby Hylan Boulevard when they need some retail therapy. There are a few cafes and places to grab a bite to eat, notably LaRocca's Italian Ices and Pizzeria. During the summer, this joint scoops up an astounding variety of Italian ice flavors. As of 2003, Midland Beach also presents the Ocean Breeze Fishing Pier. Its 835 feet of concrete and steel is perfect if you want to catch your own dinner.
The beach here suits most for sunbathing and swimming. There's the Sea Turtle Fountain that kids can splash in, ball courts, and concession stands. Miller Field to the south is good if you like your picnic areas grassy.
Midland Beach Info and the Rental Market
Unlike the rest of Staten Island, Midland Beach is mostly Irish American and Hispanic. More recently, Russian immigrants have begun to make this affordable and desirable neighborhood their homes, as well. Rental options are either older one-bedroom bungalows or newer, larger two-story brick semidetached homes and townhouses. They rent for around $1,000 and $1,600 a month respectively.
Local and express buses along Midland Avenue serve Midland Beach. There are other buses running along Hylan Boulevard, too. Many commuters choose to drive themselves. It takes half an hour into Manhattan by car, but traffic can make it take much longer.
