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.

A dance move that involves one pumping their fist into the air and gyrating their pelvis uncontrollably once the bass has been dropped....
C-Dub: Yo girl, did you see Carly last night?! Once her favorite jam came on, she pulled a "staten island" all over the dance floor!

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.

A borough of New York City. People that don't live here act as if a plethora of great activities is thrown in their fucking faces every weekend. Apparently being well-groomed (eyebrow waxing, etc.) is looked down upon by ignorant shitstains on society, and a "Staten Island accent" is inferior to any other accent, no matter how idiotic other accents may sound (such as a Southern accent, which is comparable to a deformed moose having sex with a frog). There is a large landfill that hasn't been in use since 2001, after the last of the September 11th debris was delivered. Yet, people that are oblivious of life in Staten Island continue to add definitions.
Two 70+ year old men having a conversation:

Man 1: "So where did you grow up?"

Man 2: "I grew up in Staten Island, New York."

Man 1: "Oh, I've heard that's not such a great place.Your life must have sucked pretty bad then, huh?"

Man 2: "Actually not in the slightest, I'm still happily married to my wife of 40 years, I have 3 children that all went through college with full scholarships and now they have their own families. How about you, where did you grow up?"

Man 1: "Oh I grew up in Arkansas."

Man 2: "Oh that sounds nice, how's your life been so far?"

Man 1: "...I got charged with 25 to life for murdering a prostitute after I robbed a bank, killed 3 police officers and highjacked a truck full of explosives...Luckily I fled the country though!"

Man 2: "Yeah! You define the word lowlife!"

me, personally from staten island, can say that you guys over exagerrate on the whole staten island stereotype. this whole island isnt filled with assholes, and i bet you you haven't even been to staten island before, so just stop talking bull shit. yeah i live in south shore, and so what? i'm italian, i'm not orange, i dont have tips, i dont walk around like a skank. yeah i have a north face and have coach and chanel bags, what about it? we wax our eyebrows, i would hope you do too. girls wear tight pants, no shit, do you want us to look like guys? you might think we're spoiled but if you look around im sure there much more spoiled kids where you live. we have an accent, and im pretty sure you have one from where you live too. so stop stereotyping and dont open your mouth if you dont know what your talking about. kay thanks.
Girl 1= you from staten island?
Girl 2= yeah.. why?
Girl 1= you talk & look like one.
Girl 2= good, i'm glad... you look like your from a shithole.
