The armpit of New York City
. Perpetually stuck 20-30 years behind the rest of NYC. Insane drivers, shitty public transportation (at least compared to the rest of the city).
Location of the world's biggest garbage dump. Full of pothead teenagers who somehow can't afford to pay off the tickets on the brand new car mommy and daddy bought 'em. People there tend to have an Italian grandparent who was born in the U.S. but act like everyone in their family's in the Sicilian mob. Has the world's worst drivers: everyone's a roid-raged Jersey Shore wannabe, hopped up on Oxy, or 90 years old.
Half a million people, but about 4 movie theaters and two bookstores.
Basically, take the worst parts of Brooklyn and Jersey and you've got Staten Island.
Maybe not EVERYONE from Staten Island, but face it, if you live there, you know people just like this.
