About Staten Island
Staten Island is a New York City borough and island in New York Harbor. It lies between New Jersey and Brooklyn, just south of Manhattan. The Staten Island Ferry connects the island to Manhattan, while several bridges make it easy for locals to access New Jersey and Brooklyn. Staten Island is known as New York's borough of parks, because it has a number of public parks and green spaces.
The History of Staten Island
The Unami people originally occupied Staten Island. After several failed attempts, Dutch settlers established a colony at Oude Dorp in 1661. English and Welsh farmers began arriving a few years later. During the Revolutionary War, the island's strategic location made the island important in the British invasion.
In 1898, Richmond, as it was then known, became one of New York City's boroughs. Newly-constructed bridges made it possible for people to commute to and from the island, opening it up to growth and development through the 20th century. It was renamed Staten Island in 1975.
Staten Island is New York's least-populated borough but the third largest in terms of square mileage, so there's plenty of space for locals and visitors. Many tourists catch the ferry from Manhattan to see local attractions, including the Staten Island Institute of Arts and Sciences, Staten Island Botanical Garden, the Staten Island Zoo and the Green Belt, the largest park in New York City. Historic Richmond Town is another popular attraction. It's one of the best-known living history museums in New York City and features 15 historic buildings.
Staten Island is primarily a residential area, but there are also a number of job opportunities in a variety of industries. The healthcare and social assistance sector is Staten Island's largest industry, providing a major percentage of all private-sector jobs. Staten Island University Hospital is the largest employer in this sector and the borough overall, with several thousand jobs between its campuses and community offices.
Staten Island's tourism industry supports roles in hospitality, retail, food service and customer service at local attractions. Retail is the second-largest employment sector in Staten Island, followed by hotels and motels. Staten Island also has a large manufacturing sector featuring diverse producers including Wrought Iron Concept, MHT Lighting, Tech Products and Power Metrics International.
Staten Island Schools
