Inn-like structure in Tottenville, Staten Island.

There's an inn-like structure in Tottenville, Staten Island at the end of the train line on the water.  Can somebody tell me what this is called?  It looks like an old mansion or boarding house.  Neither the  AIA giude nor Kenneth Jackson's Encyclopedia mention it (or not that I can find).

Dave Gardner--Google "Conference House" or Conference House Museum" in Staten Island. See if that's what you're asking about.

Re: Inn-like structure in Tottenville, Staten Island.

Thanks for the responses but no.  It's not the Conference House.  That's a short bus ride (or a 10-15 minute walk away) from the train station.  The 'house' in question is right on the other side of the tracks when one ends the ride.  The Outerbridge Crossing is also in plain view.

Dave-My Staten Island Historian tells me its an Italian Resturant-Angelina's 399 Ellis Street.

Goodgle it in and take the tour. Seems like you have to be connected to frequent this place!
