As New York’s most southern borough, ferry service thrives in Staten Island!
- Public Transportation
- New York
Staten Island is New York’s most southern borough. And because of that, residents heavily rely on the Staten Island Ferry to take them to Lower Manhattan.
The North Shore is the most urban area on the island, and the ferry’s point of departure and arrival into Staten Island. Inside the neighborhood, you’ll discover large Victorian homes in the Saint George Historic District, plus Staten Island Yankees Stadium and the zoo.
Conference House Park is located on the south end of the island. It’s the site of a building relic where peace talks were once discussed amidst the Revolutionary War. East Shore features the FDR Boardwalk and Beach – it’s one of the largest in the world, stretching 2.5 miles along the coast. On the west end of Staten Island is the West Shore Expressway and a couple of industrial plants. CUNY College of Staten Island resides here and is adjacent to Willowbrook Park.

After a brief period of settlement by Dutch colonists, Staten Island came under British control in the 1660s. During the American Revolution, Staten Island served as a staging ground for the British invasion of New York City and remaining under British control until the war ended. The island consisted of numerous small towns until 1898, when Staten Island consolidated with New York City. Beautifully preserved architecture from the island’s past can still be seen in the St. George and St. Paul’s Avenue-Stapleton Heights Historic Districts.
