Staten Island is home to more than 12,000 acres of beaches and parkland. A fun—and free—way to access the island is via a 25-minute ride on the Staten Island Ferry, which cruises within view of the Statue of Liberty and Governors Island. After arriving at the St. George Ferry Terminal, it’s a short walk to Richmond County Bank Ballpark, home to the Staten Island Yankees, or uphill to the neighborhood of St. George, which features a collection of historic homes. Summer is also a great season to explore the Staten Island Greenbelt—a 2,800-acre network of lush parks, wetlands, open meadows, hiking trails and a picnic stop. For a fun trip with the kids, visit the Staten Island Zoo, which recently welcomed a baby tamandua, the first recorded birth of an anteater at a New York City zoo.
