One of the five boroughs of New York City. Often referred to as "The Forgotten Borough". Aptly named, as there is nothing to do in Staten Island, other than go to the Staten Island mall, or to one of the three movie theaters. Unlike Manhattan or any of the other boroughs, Staten Island is completely divided, the North Shore being the habitat of all African-American, Latinos/Hispanics, Irish, and race and nationality that is not Italian or Russian. The South Shore/Mid-Island is made up primarily of the aforementioned parties.
Speaking as an Irish, North Shore resident, the South Shore is filled with illiterate, close-minded, spoiled children. The "Staten Island" sterotype is completely because of those assholes. Unfortunately, all Caucasian inhabitants of Staten Island are supposed to have a thick Staten Island accent, which is like the retarded child of a New Jersey accent and a Brooklyn accent, tan to an unnatural color, usually orange, and gel the shit out of your hair, if you are a man, or use hairspray like there's a fucking endless supply of it.
The North Shore, however, is known for it's crime, though I would much rather live two blocks from Jersey Street than in Tottenville. This may not come as a shock to some of you, but the KKK has an active chapter located right in Tottenville.
Please, if on a visit to Staten Island, take my advice and get out as quickly as you came. Maybe you can still go to Brooklyn.
Intelligent Staten Islander: Hello, I was wondering if I could ask what time it is?
Guido/Guidette: Ummmmm, n0. I d0nt t4lk to p30pl3 l1ke u.
Intelligent Staten Islander: I'm astounded and scared of the fact that my IQ is slowly decreasing every moment I spend talking to you.
Guido/Guidette: IQ? n0w u g0nna t4lk sh1t?
Intelligent Staten Islander: How did I end up in this cesspool? My God, why have you forsaken me?

The forgotten Borough where you've gotten into arguments with people who think Long Island is the fifth borough. You refer to Manhattan as 'the city'. You call the ferry "the boat". You can name all four bridges. Denino's Pizza and Ralph's Ices are the best summertime treats ---and you will wait on line for 45 minutes just for a vanilla chip ice! You've gone sledding at Latourette. There is only one mall... and it's called 'the mall.' It takes you a half hour to get to your friend's house... and they live less than a mile away. You know it's Prince's Bay, not Princess Bay. You would never swim in the water here. At least one of your relatives is fluent in Italian.more...
You or someone you know has more than one matching velour sweat suits in their closet. You can smell the dump from your house but you're so used to the smell that you don't notice it anymore. You've gotten into a screaming match over a parking spot. Someone you know has a lifetime membership to Tanning Loft. Everyone you know claims to be 'connected.' You've hung out in a parking lot. You know the difference between Richmond Rd., Richmond Ave., and Richmond Terrace. You know that 'Mike' owns all the good diners. You refer to every highway on the island as 'The Expressway.' You've been cut off by a souped up Honda Accord with earth shaking bass playing. You have chased someone for cutting you off just to give them the finger. A development of townhouses has recently sprung up in your neighborhood. The shocks in y...
1) Receptical of New York City's garbage (paper, plastic and human)

4) The forgotten borough of New York City
The five broughs of New York City are Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx and...and...and...Oh yeah, Staten Island.

Staten Island the fifth borough of nyc, its 13 miles long with almost 1/2 a million residents. Staten Island hosts one of the largest landfills in the world which is roughly 2200 acres in size. The entire shoreline is polluted and the Island is plauged with traffic and congestion.
Manhatten and Brooklyn are extreemly close to Staten as well as Jersey City so its difficult to get bored if you live here. The south shore and north shore differ in that the north shore is more urbanized then the south.
A lot of Staten Island residents have a heavy accent, when the Verrazano bridge went up many families from Brooklyn flooded the island. Access to the rest of the city is unique in that the train line ends in St George and you board a ferry boat that takes you to Manhatten. As you pass the statue of liberty and approach the city the view is awesome.
Staten Island is home of Wu.

A borough of NYC.
Brooklyn with parking.
A place where, it seems, the majority of people (at least the ones who care to contribute to this website) cannot spell.
A place where I've lived most of my life(and my parents too), while I still manage to be educated, gainfully employed, accentless and of normal skin tone. There are a lot of us.
"Where are you from?"
"Wow, you don't sound like it.'
The long lost bourough of NYC. Staten Island has the biggest wiggers in the world. Kids from Todt Hill drive around in there Escalades and Mercades listening to rap and hate all the black, mexicans, Puerto Ricans that drive by them.
Also, where i live. -.-; The garbe hole of the world.
Staten Island should get flooded and die
