The Pleasant Plains, NY Community

Pleasant Plains is located on the south shore of Staten Island, looking out over the Lower New York Bay.


When the Staten Island Railway was built in 1860, there was already a Tottenville station, so the owners called the next station, which was two miles north, Pleasant Plains. The name stuck as the community grew around the station.

From 1882 to 1994, Pleasant Plains was home to The Mission of the Immaculate Virgin for the Protection of Homeless and Destitute Children, more commonly known as Mount Loretto.

Founded by Father John Drumgoole, Mount Loretto was the largest orphanage in the U.S, and, at its height, was a self-sustaining micro-community with its own farm, including crops and livestock. There was also a school, churches, dormitories and an infirmary to care for the residents.

The site is still home to a number of community organizations, and the former agricultural land is now a nature preserve.


Pleasant Plains is a great destination to live if you enjoy health and fitness, vibrant nightlife and outdoor activities. With a small population of around 2,700, there’s lots of space to enjoy life.

According to, the median home value is $714,932, which is well above the national average of $229,800, and 58% of residents own their homes.

In January, you can expect an average temperature of 32°F during the day and 18°F overnight, and, over the course of the winter, you can expect to deal with about 15 inches of snow. Cozy blankets, warm clothes and a couple of space heaters make winter tolerable.

In summer, you can expect 75% humidity and highs of around 84°F during the day and 60°F overnight. That is not very comfortable for sleeping, so you’ll probably need air conditioning or a couple of fans.

If you don’t have a great deal of space at home, all the accoutrements for surviving weather in NYC can take up a great deal of space. A self-storage unit is a great solution for stowing fans, heaters, lawn and garden equipment, heavy quilts and blankets and other “survival” gear until you need them again.
