Vacant Land in Staten Island, New York Available Via Online Auction


NEW YORK, NY -- The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) announces the online auction of a vacant parcel of land in Staten Island, New York. GSA is selling the property on behalf of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. The online auction originally opened on March 21.

The online auction is part of GSA’s ongoing efforts to dispose of excess properties saving taxpayer dollars and making more efficient use of the government’s real estate assets.

Sarcone III, GSA’s Northeast and Caribbean Region. “By disposing of the Staten Island site on behalf of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, GSA will reduce our federal footprint, create savings for the government, and will help create potential economic development opportunities while revitalizing the area.”
