The Van Duzer-Beach Street district in Stapleton is home to a thriving
and growing community of more than a thousand artists. Recognized as
the counter-cultural center of Staten Island, it has become a notable
hub for live music and an incubator for new bands and innovative
projects. The neighborhood attracts visual and performance artists,
photographers, film makers, literati, and everything in between.
The district’s commerce is comprised mostly of independently owned
small businesses that work hand in hand with the local artists.
