Heartland Village - Staten Island, NY

Heartland Village refers to the area, quite literally, at the “heart” of the island, bordered to the north by New Springville and to the west and south by the Fresh Kills inlets. Residentially, this is a very desirable community because of its recent development and proximity to shopping centers. Heartland Village is the island’s second largest commercial and administrative hub, after St. George. Homes here consist mainly of newly-built townhouses in private communities. The Staten Island Mall and other big-name retailers are located directly within this area. Education options here include P.S. 69I.S. 72, and CSI High School. Additionally, the area is served by the S44, S59, and S61 local buses, as well as the X17 and X31 express buses.
