Description

Tottenville (Images of America) chronicles the history of Tottenville, Staten Island, NY with more 200 vintage images that have captured the bygone days and bring to life the people, places, and events of the past. 

Tottenville, located at the southernmost point in New York State, has long been considered the forgotten town in the forgotten borough of New York City. The area was first populated in the 1600s by the Lenni Lenape Indians who summered on its shores, assured of a bountiful harvest from the sea. Bordered on three sides by water, the town had its roots in the oyster fishing, shipbuilding, and ship repair industries and grew rapidly. Despite the building boom and tremendous growth in population since the opening of the Verrazano Narrows Bridge in 1964, Tottenville retains its small-town feel and offers residents an oasis from big city life in the form of a welcoming and tight-knit community.
