Any summer visit to Staten Island should include a stop at the Greenbelt, a network of lush parks, wetlands, open meadows and hiking trails that includes NYC’s largest forest preserve. To get to the City’s greenest borough, board the free Staten Island Ferry at Whitehall Terminal in Lower Manhattan. The 25-minute boat ride offers fantastic views of the Statue of Liberty and the Lower Manhattan skyline. After you dock in St. George, take some snapshots in the picturesque enclave of roughly 80 late-19th-century, photo-worthy houses in the Queen Anne, Colonial Revival and Shingle architectural styles.
