look up any word, like swag:

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.
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 your car are shot because you hit pot holes every 2 feet. You have the need to look at the people in the car next to you when stopped at a red light to see if it someone you know. You know never to walk on South Beaches sand with out Shoes. You've seen Method Man in the Mall at least once. The Monastery and Sea View aren't scary, just another place to drink. You own a North Face jacket. Everybody and their mother has a Nextel. You wave at the weird leg guy when you pass the North Shore, and sometimes he waves back.
In Staten Island even the guys get their eyebrows waxed.

The "forgotten" borough where the only thing besides the massive pot holes that kill teens from ages 16-19...is boredom. The borough of parks, trash, cemeteries, pizzarias and the "Zoo" . Our Zoo has four goats and a monkey...literally. The borough where one house can go down, and 37 can fit in its place, where the hair is high and the I.Q. is low. The place that has the "Mall," where the over-sexed and cake-faced tweens infest. There's one Barns 'n Noble bookstore (for those who dare to look away from their sidekicks) and a Target wayyyy in the back (where we sweep it underneath some rugs so people don't classify us a suburban lost cause.)
Mike: So what are we hittin up first?
Sam: Mall, movies...yeah that's it.
Mike: (sigh) Staten Island.
Sam: Yeah...Staten Island.

Staten island(North shore)-a growing diverse community, a little noisy, and hilly but O.K.
Staten island (South shore)- A area where mostly Italian-American kids think they are ghetto in spite of the fact that they are prileged and hate black people. They even makeup fake ass guido gangs (gasp!). When they are arrested by the cops for petite crimes like vandalizing property and shoplifting, they cry like little bitches.They live in 800K to million dollar mansions and drive BMW convertibles, SUV's, Hondas and Volkswagen Jettas to school while blasting rap, ironically. A place where parents pass on their "views" of the world to their upper middle class children. The parents all act like they are the shit, and talk with an annoying staten island guido accent.

Yes its known as the forgotten borough, Yes some people have tanning issues, and there are italian people here but there are also russian, african american, asian, spanish, irish, german, and many other cultures here to. To generalize a place without having an open mind is considered steryotyping. True life staten island was a terriable example of how people live here. North Shore and South Shore are deffinatley different but the people can be considered the same. The south shore is more suburbs and the north more urbanized. People on the north and south shore both have jobs or dont and we are all suffering with the economy today so to say that south shore people are rich is just ignorant. Staten Island like any other borough has its good parts and bad parts some people are less fortunate then others but hey thats life happens everywhere. Staten island honestly has nothing to do. Yes theres movie theaters (so old) and ice skating rinks that everyone went to for fun durning junior high (played out) and besides that theres nothing fun about this island. the mall is were people also go to just hang out and window shop which is rediculous.

A few things need to be set straight here!

1. There are black people on Staten Island! It isn't all Italian.

2. There is no dump and hasn't been since 2001.

3. The air is seriously polluted but it doesn't smell.

4. There's five sections of Staten Island, the North Shore, the South Shore, the West Shore, Mid-Island, and the SI Mall.

5. All the black/hispanic/non-white people live on the North Shore (Above the highway). All the white people live in the other sections.

6. There are over 7 sets of project buildings on Staten Island.

7. There are very rough, and unsafe areas on Staten Island's North Shore.

8. There's three bus lines that go to Brooklyn and one to Jersey.

9. North Shore Staten Island people don't travel to the other parts of SI and only see them at the Mall and the Ferry.

10. "Guidos" from the South Shore are scared of the North Shore!
Black Dude from SI: "yea i'm from Staten Island "
Bronx Person: "Damnn..i thought only white ppl live dere"

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?
