Although home to over half a million people, Staten Island is the least populous borough in New York City, giving the community the feel of a much smaller city by comparison. The northern part of the island is quite urbanized, somewhat resembling the landscape of nearby Brooklyn. As you move south, the environment becomes more suburban, with single-family homes spread out among beautiful public parks.
Thanks to the affordable rental rates and easy access to Brooklyn and Manhattan, the North Shore is a hotbed for creatives, with many musicians and artists honing their crafts in the local venues. Major touring acts regularly pass through as well, with the historic St. George Theatre serving as a popular stop.
Located in the north-central portion of the island, CUNY College of Staten Island enrolls over 13,000 students, contributing a youthful energy to the surrounding area. The quiet atmosphere and more affordable space in the southern portion of the island attract many folks who work in Manhattan but prefer a more subdued (and less expensive) living arrangement.

After a brief period of settlement by Dutch colonists, Staten Island came under British control in the 1660s.
