Graniteville Homes For Sale

Formerly known as Bennett’s Corners and Fayetteville, Graniteville Staten Island is a neighborhood situated in the northern section of the island. Quarries for trap rock were operated in the area from 1841 to 1896, leading to the community’s name to be changed first to Granite Village, and eventually Graniteville. Cornered between the Staten Island Expressway and New York State Route 440, the neighborhood is very accessible by highway. Like many other neighborhoods, residential development spurred after the construction of the Verrazzano-Narrows Bridge connecting Staten Island to Brooklyn. Graniteville homes for sale may reflect the historic boom of construction during this era of Graniteville.

The Staten Island diabase is a curious and unique rock formation that only appears on one part of the island.
