Todt Hill

The term Todt Hill is now often used to include the upscale developments in the hills along the eastern side of the ridge, which most island geographers classify as part of the neighborhood of Dongan Hills.

Two small, natural ponds are found on Todt Hill, and a Roman Catholic priory is located near the summit. The long established Staten Island Academy, a private school, moved its campus to Todt Hill in the 1960s. There is a golf course adjoining the Moravian Cemetery, each of which has a man-made pond. Otherwise the hill is either parkland or private homes. There is no public transit available on Todt Hill, and most of the streets lack sidewalks.

Residents on Todt Hill are among the wealthiest on Staten Island and even in New York. Former New York Mets relief pitcher John Franco currently lives on the hill. The late Gambino crime family boss Paul Castellano also lived there in a house noted for its intended resemblance of the White House. His family lived on Todt Hill as well, but moved in 2005.
