WHAT’S IN A NAME:  The area was named for an English Lake District village by mid-19th century developer, Roderick Cameron.
This bucolic lakeside scene is just a few minutes’ walk from the Railway Station.  Staten Island has a large number of surprisingly “rural” spots.  The owners of the houses around this lake, and another one nearby, are members of a long-standing private community.
 
Also near the Station are various storefronts and a small shopping center.
