Generally, the North Shore is deemed to consist of the communities located within ZIP Codes
10303, 10302 and 10310 in their entirety, along with all of the area covered by 10301 except
Sunnyside, and those parts of 10304 and 10305 that lie north of the Staten Island Expressway.
Under this definition,
Mariners Harbor, Port Richmond, West Brighton, New Brighton, St. George, Tompkinsville, Stapleton, Clifton, and Rosebank, are included among the North Shore's
neighborhoods.

The North Shore was the first section of Staten Island to become more or less densely populated,
a condition that had been achieved by the beginning of the 20th Century.

The Kill Van Kull shoreline stretching from St. George to Mariners Harbor was once a major manufacturing hub, but today most of its factories are closed. The North Shore also suffered
economic blows when the branch of the
Staten Island Railway serving it ceased passenger service
in
1953, and when the Staten Island Mall opened in 1973, attracting many businesses from
Port Richmond, which heretofore had been a prominent commercial district.

St. George is the county seat of Richmond County, as Staten Island is alternately known, and is
the site of the passenger
ferry connecting the Island with downtown Manhattan.

Important landmarks and points of interest located on the North Shore include Wagner College,
Sailors Snug Harbor, the Bayonne Bridge, and Silver Lake Park and its public golf course.
