About The Esplanade & the Scharf Family

The Esplanade, a respected family-owned and operated organization, is pleased to bring its unique brand of affordable, independent senior living to Staten Island, NY, because we understand that finding the right place for yourself, your spouse, or loved one to live at can often be a challenge.


For more than sixty years, the Scharf Family’s Esplanade Luxury Senior Residences have consistently delivered an exceptional level of quality care and support that their residents deserve, and that The Esplanade has become known for. Motivated by a deep-rooted tradition of respect for the elderly, The Esplanade is committed to cultivating a safe, secure environment that fosters dignity for each and every resident in a warm, home-like setting.


Our philosophy focuses on taking a positive approach to senior living with a mission to allow seniors to age in a beautiful and comfortable atmosphere with every possible amenity.
