New Dorp: Possibilities for Walkability and Transit in a Railway ‘New Village’

  • Staten Island Railroad station

New Dorp is set apart by its architectural characteristics, density, walkability, and independent businesses. Walk with us around New Dorp Lane, the “Main Street” of Staten Island’s East Shore, to learn about the history and visit local businesses, and see tree-lined residential streets and parks. Take part in a mobile discussion and envision how New Dorp and sister railway villages can improve cohesiveness, walkability, transit use and and take advantage of inevitable pressures to densify.

Every day, all over the city, Transportation Alternatives is working to revitalize New York City’s neighborhoods and restore a vibrant culture of street life. This walk features one of the many communities where T.A. advocacy brings safe and healthy streets for all.
