Today, we proudly announce the opening of our second and newest community on Staten Island, Sunrise of New Dorp.
Sunrise of New Dorp will continue our tradition of providing high-quality senior living services as we welcome our first residents onsite today. The nearly 85,000 square foot, four-story property by Moseley Architects will provide occupancy for nearly 130 residents and offer assisted living as well as memory care options for individuals living with dementia.
Sunrise of New Dorp’s suites are carefully designed by Sunrise’s in-house design team to support residents’ comfort and safety, featuring custom finishes and an emergency response system. The community combines an elegant mix of modern and interior design touches across its common areas and private spaces, and features custom furniture built for residents’ needs. At the heart of the community constructed in partnership with KBE Building Corporation and PWC Companies, sits a lively and multi-functional bistro area, offering a place for coffee and snacks as well as seating options for lounging in front of the large slab stone fireplace, dining, playing games and socializing. A large, enclosed courtyard spanning the entire width of the community will provide safe, accessible outdoor space for residents to enjoy year-round and includes a pergola with seating. Sunrise of New Dorp’s amenities include an expansive theatre room and a boutique nail and hair salon.
“We are thrilled to welcome residents to our community at New Dorp,” said Sunrise of New Dorp’s Executive Director, Cheryl Bambach. “We look forward to providing the best possible experience to our residents as we support them to live the lifestyles they want and deserve.
One of those new residents is Ms. Beatrice “Bea” Rogers! She was born in raised in Brooklyn, NY and moved to Staten Island in 1989. One of seven children, Bea was the only girl in the family. Having grown up with six brothers, Bea was thrilled when she had two daughters of her own. From her two daughters, Bea was blessed with four grandchildren.
Bea was a career woman from the age of 19, working for WMCA in radio and television advertising. She later went on to work in real estate. She was impressed with our community, Sunrise of New Dorp, at first sight. The open design and bright airy community made Beatrice feel right at home.
Bea enjoys painting, traveling on cruise ships and dining out at Italian restaurants. Her favorite time spent is with her daughters. She is very social and when asked why she decided to move to Sunrise she said “I enjoy being around people, I love to talk and share stories. The team here is so warm and welcoming”.
Beatrice joins the Sunrise family as one of our first Founders of Sunrise of New Dorp.

Sunrise of New Dorp’s location on Staten Island provides immediate access to the New York City Metropolitan Area as well as the surrounding region. With proximity to the Staten Island Expressway, residents will have access to quick excursions to Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Jersey City. The community is situated moments from the shops, restaurants, and beaches of Staten Island’s Hylan Boulevard which features various new options, and surrounded by many independent parks, including Miller Field.

Community Partnerships & Multi-Generational Learning
Sunrise of New Dorp is located near New Dorp High School, which offers opportunities for intergenerational learning and connection building between Sunrise residents and local students. Sunrise is working with school and student leadership to build a partnership to serve both communities. In fact, New Dorp High School’s National Honor Society has already begun to work with the Sunrise community, writing and creating welcoming materials for new residents when they arrive.
“Our location next to New Dorp High School offers so many wonderful options for our residents to connect with the students. From programming within our community to field trips to the school, we are looking forward to how we can build an intergenerational program that builds meaningful and long-term connections,” said Aprillynne Cruz, Sunrise of New Dorp’s Director of Sales. “We are so grateful for the warm welcome the New Dorp High School’s National Honor Society has already given us and can’t wait to continue this partnership.”
