Staten Island – South Beach/Midland Beach
Father Capodanno Blvd (bet. Miller Field and Seaview Ave.)
Staten Island, NY 10306
The sea turtle fountain, which kids can run through (for hours on end), makes the trip to Midland Beach worth it—at least for the little ones. The playground and handball and shuffleboard courts don't hurt, either. Midland Beach shares the Franklin D. Roosevelt Boardwalk with adjacent South Beach, usually the more crowded of the two. Midland Beach is also home to a veterans memorial honoring Staten Island residents who served and died in World War I, World War II and the Korean and Vietnam Wars.
