Tottenville, like the rest of the greater New York City area, distinctly experiences all four seasons: spring, summer, fall, and winter. As a warning, summers can be quite hot and humid. Winters, on the other hand, can bring freezing temperatures, cold winds, and plenty of snow!
Tottenville is bordered by the Staten Island Sound to the north, Richard Avenue to the east, Red Bank Reach to the south, and Ward Point Bend to the west. Hylan Boulevard, Amboy Road, Page Avenue, and Arthur Kill Road seem to be the main roadways through Tottenville. Pedestrians may wish to stick to the quieter, residential streets and avoid these major roadways.
Nearby greenways include North Mount Loretto State Park, the Mount Loretto Unique Area, Lemon Creek Park, the Lemon Creek Tidal Wetlands Area, and Fairview Park.
Unfortunately, the nearest dog park seem to be roughly three miles away in Bloomingdale Park. The off-leash area is perfect if Fido needs to burn off some extra energy! Another nearby off-leash area known as Woodbridge Dog Park can be found across the river in New Jersey.
