Environment & HEALTH/aMBIENTE & SALUD ACCESS TO FOOD Tax incentives are available to markets and supermarkets willing to locate in Port Richmond. Zoning incentives are available to locate markets and supermarkets in the other boroughs, but not Staten Island.

Port Richmond lacks access to supermarkets • High need across North Shore; minimal need on South Shore • Highest need in Port Richmond, St. George, and Mariners Harbor A 2006 a study from the American Journal of Preventive Medicine found that the presence of a supermarket within a Census tract led to lower numbers of obese and overweight residents.

1 2


URBAN DESIGN/DISEÑO URBANO SITE CHARACTERISTICS - SECTION ONE: THE AVENUE

Section One: • Buildings constructed together in groups, creating commercial row of similar architectural details • Building materials: brick and wood-faced facades, plate-glass storefronts with signage in windows, brick-work ornamentation, wood-detailed cornices, facades, and shingles • Buildings constructed in 1920’s and 30’s • 1-3 story buildings, multiple mixed-use buildings • Signage located between first and second floors creating a continuous band of signage • Metal security gates


URBAN DESIGN/DISEÑO URBANO SITE CHARACTERISTICS - SECTION TWO: EAST SIDE & WEST SIDE RESIDENTIAL

Section Two: • Colonial, Victorian, Queen Anne, Wooden Shingle, and Bungalows: strong sense of historical place • Attached housing: row of uniform buildings with setbacks utilized for parking space • Historical “workers’ housing”: brick construction and ornamentation; uniform, continuous row of front porches Section Three: • Single-family detached housing, wooden shingle construction, setbacks for yards and private parking, many front porches and gabled roofs • Historical homes mixed with new construction • Many homes with private and gated front and back yards


URBAN DESIGN/DISEテ前 URBANO SITE CHARACTERISTICS - SECTION FOUR: INDUSTRIAL WATERFRONT

Section Four 窶「 Industrial area mixed with moderate amount of commercial buildings, some of historical significance 窶「 Continuous row of metal fencing to shelter industrial areas along Richmond Terrace 窶「 Limited waterfront views across waterfront
