I needed to escape from the crowds of Manhattan for a couple of days. Staten Island seemed a likely candidate and I found my way to Danuta's B&B at 92 Taylor Street. I found her to be extremely friendly, accommodating, knowledgeable and concerned for my comfort. She offered to pick me up at the ferry terminal, gave me a nice tour of her home and provided me with an endless parade of snacks and drinks. She is a lively conversationalist and tells entertaining stories. Breakfast both days was ample, novel and satisfying. Danuta dedicated herself to seeing that I was well-fed before leaving for each day's travels and adventures. There is bus service between the ferry terminal and Danuta's home. Get a schedule and plan accordingly.
Please do yourself a favor and stay with her. You will love your time there. I did.
