Neighborhood Highlights

You can get to the City’s “greenest borough” (the island has more than 170 parks and 12,300 acres of protected parkland) with a 25-minute ride on the free Staten Island Ferry. Along the way, passengers enjoy prime views of the Statue of Liberty and Lower Manhattan’s skyline. When the ferry docks in the St. George neighborhood, you’ll be treated to an area with hidden architectural gems like the St. George Theatre. The historic venue hosts music, comedy and drama performances year-round. Also nearby is the Staten Island Museum, which showcases art related to the borough as well as a large natural science exhibit. Further inland is Historic Richmond Town, a Colonial-era village that features costumed characters living and working amid period buildings, many of which are original sites.
