My favorite place in the world. Everyone says how shitty it is but truthfully, there are few places I enjoy more. While it's evident that you shouldn't go in the water at the beach I'm sure many people have enjoyed running through the splash grounds when they were younger. What about the playgrounds? Can anyone truly say that they've burnt their feet by running around the black rubber barefoot and never done it again? It's just one of those things that makes you feel at home. Maybe it's just a "Great Kills" thing because everyone else seems to think Staten Island is just a hell hole.
