Staten Island, NY

show info

Staten Island is one of New York City’s five boroughs; however, with 500,000 residents, it’s the smallest by a long shot—nearly 1,000,000 people shy of the Bronx. Staten Island may be quieter than the other boroughs, but it has a lot of its own charm. It boats the 2.5-mile long FDR Boardwalk, several designated historic districts, and a free quaint ferry that allows travelers to check out Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty.
