Mariners Harbor is a neighborhood located in the northwestern part of New York City’s borough of Staten Island. It is bordered by Lake Avenue to the east, Forest Avenue to the south, Richmond Terrace to the north, and Holland Avenue to the west. The northwestern section of Mariners Harbor is often known as Arlington.
The neighborhood is named for its 19th-century harvesting of oysters and other seafood products from the Kill Van Kull, which forms the neighborhood’s northern border. Later developments included shipbuilding, repair and marine salvage work. Fishing activity declined due to pollution during the 20th century. The Mariners Harbor Yacht Club remains as a reminder of the community’s maritime past. Mariners Harbor was also home to large shipping and dry dock companies in the first half of the 20th century.
Mariners Harbor is served by the S40, S46 and S48 local bus routes (and their rush-hour-only limited-stop counterparts, which are S90, S96 and S98 respectively). The Manhattan express bus routes in Mariners Harbor are SIM30, SIM33, SIM33C and SIM34.
