The South Shore is a geographical term
applied to the area of
Staten Island, New York, south and east of the
island's ridge of hills (and
Richmond Creek and
Fresh Kills south of
Historic Richmond Town) along the waterfront and
adjacent areas from
the Narrows to the mouth of the
Arthur Kill, although many observers prefer
to restrict its scope to the neighborhoods located between the shoreline of
Raritan Bay on one side and Richmond Creek and
Fresh Kills on the other, thus encompassing the neighborhoods of
Great Kills to
Those who choose to recognize this more narrow definition of
the "South Shore" reckon the communities that lie along the Lower New York Bay, and inland for approximately 2 to 2½
Bay Terrace and
Richmondtown to as far north as
Concord, as the
East Shore. Prior to the 1960's, the South Shore
was widely undeveloped, however after the building of the
Narrows Bridge, its population rose sharply.

Greenridge Auction Market 1952
Pleasant Plains Amboy Road
Picture was taken at (about) 7350 Amboy Rd, Tottenville.
Yates' was on the west side of Amboy Rd, between Lee Ave and Wood Ave
(Yates' was almost opposite the Amboy Road's intersection w/ Sleight Av, which begins on the So. side of Amboy
Rd).. Was a very busy little store thru the fifties..
Looking at that pic, that house next door is the parsonage of St Stephens church which
is still on the corner of Lee Av. Going the other way (towards the pic's right) was Eckoffs Confectionery
Store (which was on the corner of Amboy/Wood).
That date- 1949: Each Flag Day (June 14) the Tottenville Merchants Association
conducted a parade from Amboy/Page Ave., to the Pavilion at end of Hylan Blvd. Very big deal in
Tottenville each year, always a big event. -That explains the horse..
