Dongan Hills
To St. George To Tottenville To Stations
WHAT’S IN A NAME:  The Manor of Castletown (later corrupted to Castleton) was the name of Gov. Congan’s country seat on Staten Island, and was called after the place of residence of the family in County Kildare, Ireland.  
The area surrounding the Dongan Hills Station boasts two other barber shops/salons in addition to Frank’s, pictured here.  The saying goes:  You find the good in church, the bad in prison, and the real in the barber shop.
There is also a corner business with two huge plate glass windows but no external signage.  If you peer in you see “Lee’s Tavern” in gold letters over the bar mirror. Some say their thin-crust pizza is the best in the Borough.
