Just about half of what was previously said is true. Not everyone is an idiot, we're home to a highly ranked High School, #1 according to the Post. Sure we have Fresh Kills, the mall, 3 movie theaters, and that's about it. But we have a go-karting place somewhere, and nobody's ever too old for Chuck-E-Cheese's or Fun Station. Not everyone's a guido. Not everyone is a republican. Not everyone is rich. We have projects in almost every area. They just may be better in some. As a mid-islander, most people are middle-class. There are quite affluent families, and a lot of Italians, some descendants of mob bosses do remain. The South shore is more affluent and suburban compared to the North Shore but there is a variety of races in both areas. Yeah we have accents, 4 bridges, 1 train line and accents. But we also have some of the best cars, are getting the largest ferris wheel in the world, and an outlet mall. So Staten Island shouldn't be under estimated or stereotyped even though a lot of the teenagers are stuck-up, racist, wannabe ghetto white kids, there are smart, non-Italian, financially stable people all around the island who aren't guidos. We're Suburban/Urban and I love that there are fantastic cars here that people can freely drive unlike in other boroughs.
I live on Staten Island, am a teenage girl, I don't cake on make up, I'm smart, I own Juicy and Coach items, I love the mall, I'm probably not getting a car until I'm at least half done with college, I'm not White or African-American or Hispanic. I'm mostly mid-island, I have lived on the North Shore and I have family on the South Shore and I can prove that a lot of Staten Island stereotypes are complete and utter crap. But we do have a lot of potholes and assholes are common all over New York City.
Staten Island is the 5th borough also known as the"forgoten borough",with a population of 491,730, Staten Island is the least populated of the five boroughs.
Some things totally normal & common to Staten Island :
Hooking up near the atrium.
Hooking up at McDonalds.
Grinding at rollerjam.
People who drive always getting cut off.
MILFS who look more like muskrats.
Women who can't drive there big escalades,jeeps,&trucks for shit.
Girls with orange skin.
Over 90% of girls wear Bombshell bra's.
"PINK"sweatpants & UGGS
IM ONLY SAYING THIS BECAUSE I'VE LIVED HERE MY WHOLE LIFE,& KNOWS WHAT GOES ON,DON'T TALK SHIT UNLESS YOU LIVE HERE BECAUSE I'M FULL ITALIAN & DON'T DO ANY OF THE STUFF YOU SEE ON T.V & ON YOUTUBE IN SPOOFS.
SOME OF US,can have poofs,orange skin,"tawk lyke dwis new yawk".
AND SOME OF US can be totally chill & not do that.
WE ARE NOT ALL OF THE SAME,SOME OF US ARE STILL SANE.

I am new to the borough.. So far it has been okay. Quiet around were I live. I guess considered the Northern Part. There are some things that remind me of the South Bronx my old home. But hey so far so good...
Staten Island Peaceful home.
Or the like the girl from models in the bronx spelled it State Island.
White people "acting black" interesting to watch.
Good looking people.
And yeah the Mall is what catches my eye on the weekends.
Very segregated. Very few from the North will venture out to the South and vice versa. The mall acts an an epicenter for the two. The South is mostly White and the North is all the other ethnicity with a few in the middle.
Out of all the places in NY, I feel this is the most racist area I've ever been. Unbearable rude, spoiled, narrow minded, stuck up people. Everyone I've met has the same attitude and manners as Jersey Shore, slightly calmer.
It is a very closed off area, you only see residents on staten island. No one from other boroughs of NY.
Everyone that wants to fit in wear North Face, the black puffy ugly jacket. Parking is good but if you park in front of someone's house they will curse you out. Even though they have a corner house and a double driveway.
South Shore is deserted you will not meet people walking around. If you do, you don't want to be associated with them.
Public transportation is HORRIBLE. A commute to midtown, ny can be almost 2hrs one way!!!
"I wear North Face, so I'm going to act conceded"
"Don't you dare park your car in front of my house, even though that spot is considered public and I do not own it. Even though it is common elsewhere in NY."
"I'm going to make racist comments to the minorities because they are clearly out numbered by living here."
"How did the bottom of your car get so scratched up?!?"
"That's normal, a pothole is the same size as the tire."
a borough in new york that people hate on 24\7. thats enough for all this hating on staten island. 75% of u that hate on staten island have never been there. and not everyone is a guido with spikey hair. im albanian and im from the projects in south beach. now for all the people that see this and start hating; stop talkin bout guidos and go to the project in staten, then u will never hate again on staten.
S.Ier#1 : damn yo i hate when people hate on staten island
S.I.er#2 word son, they neva even been to our projectz
First off im from staten island and im gettin pissed from all these people talking shit. Everybody says we try to act "hard core" go to the brooklyn defination the people there think there all tough.. i read one guy he's like BROOKLYN SELLS THE BEST CRACK.. and others saying brooklyn is the most realist hard core place around. i find this funny after all of them come to staten island in a matter of time.Im in brooklyn alot. what else can you do there besides mall or movies? the park?.staten island is creating a huge park that will be amazing with MANY things to do witch will be done in 2011.what you guys gonna say then?. Now for the comments with the cars and the "ghetto" kids and the "italians" hmm, I guess this is true or some of it.But its not our fault our "italian" parents moved here from brooklyn is it?for the cars. I see some rich kids showing off. but ONLY a few have those cars, and i bet there not theirs, and for people sayin that people from todt hill show off everything, well people its a RICH area houses are 1.2+ not thier faults.and i find it HALRIOUS people are hating on us because we dont have a train station that doesnt leave staten island. DONT BITCH TO US GO TO THE GOVERMENT OR SOME SHIT. Also why is it OK for a brooklyn kid to rap? but if someone in staten island does it they will get made fun of.And as for the eminem comment i saw. Look around kid every white kid from every state trys to be like him.and as for the weed comment, you dont know what your t...more...
One of the five burroughs in the state of New York. Plagued with cloned girls and "gangsta
" boys, Staten Island becomes less and less bearable to live in. There is virtually nothing to do on Staten Island so getting fubar
is the only logical thing to do to keep busy. The good thing about Staten Island is the easy comute to Manhattan without having to drive which makes going out to clubs and bars on the weekend an easy task.
Staten Island is still better then toxic Jersey.
