Staten Island

Neighborhood Highlights

Staten Island is a breezy fall getaway, and one of the best things about visiting is the ride there. The Staten Island Ferry boards at the Whitehall Terminal in Lower Manhattan, and it’s one of the most scenic ways to see the Statue of Liberty and the Lower Manhattan skyline. Oh, and it’s free. You’ll disembark at St. George, a neighborhood full of art, architecture, music and even a baseball park. Enjoy performing arts at the gilded St. George Theatre and explore weird science at the Staten Island Museum. Or step into the colonial era with a visit to Historic Richmond Town, which boasts more than 30 restored buildings, annual pumpkin picking and a traditional butter churn.
