Heartland Village
Heartland Village is a residential development located close to the geographic center of Staten Island, one of the five boroughs of the USA's largest city, New York. The name is also often used to denote the immediately surrounding area.

Heartland Village is located within the New Springville neighborhood of Staten Island. The development itself occupies a square-shaped area bounded by Richmond Avenue, Rockland Avenue, Richmond Hill Road, and Forest Hill Road, exclusive of the various shopping centers also located therein, most notably the Staten Island Mall.

New Springville was originally a rural and wooded community. The construction of the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge (opened in 1964) led to the establishment on Staten Island of many large residential development communities. One of the largest development communities to emerge was the Heartland Village community. Construction of the Heartland Village Community started in the late 1960s and would continue through the early 1980s.

Heartland Village's proximity to the Staten Island Mall and many other smaller shopping centers nearby has made it one of the island's most attractive residential communities; indeed, the region has emerged as the island's second largest commercial and administrative hub, after St. George.

Most of the homes in Heartland Village consist of six rooms, with three bedrooms. These are medium-sized homes. In recent years, with most new construction has been focused on larger homes or condominiums, these medium-sized homes have become particularly desirable.

With the increasing residential population, a need arose for new schools to be built in the community. In 1976, two such schools opened: An elementary school, P.S. 69, the Daniel D. Tompkins School and I.S. 72, the Rocco Laurie Intermediate School.
