A borough of New York city that's connected by the Verrazano through Brooklyn.
Most of the people who live on Staten Island are from Brooklyn and most are Italian. I live on the South Shore and alot of people here do own nice cars and possessions but that doesn't mean they dont work for them. I moved to Staten Island from a predominately Italian neighborhood in Brooklyn and its pretty similiar except things here are a little bit more separated which is a good thing, your not so on top of each other. But I keep hearing the same thing "all Staten Island is is slutty girls, spiky haired boys, tanning, and guidos." This is true for some people but not everyone, some people go tanning but you can't tell me that Staten Island's the only place where people go tanning, boys spike their hair but thats the trend here just like the trends there are in California or wherever. Some girls are slutty but that doesn't have anything to do with where we live it's just the way they are, there are slutty girls everywhere so you can't just blame that on here. And the main thing, Italians. Im Italian, I speak Italian, my family speaks Italian, I know alot about my Italian culture and so do all of the other kids on Staten Island that are Italian. Just because you show your culture doesn't mean you think your better than everyone else or that your showing off. The way we speak is not a Staten Island accent its a New York city accent. Growing up in Brooklyn and Staten Island I have a very heavy accent, it doesn't mean im stupid or incapable of intelligence it means that the place where I live affected the way I speak just like it does in other places like the South. Peoples perceptions of Staten Island are pretty much always negative and thats probably because some of the people who live here give it a negative reputation. Staten Island is actually a great place to live its located where the is more culture than you can imagine, its very populated for a small island but the houses and everything around it is nice, theres parks, boardwalks, museums, shopping and other things for the people here. I wouldnt reccomend coming here on vacation because its a place where there is not much to see but despite peoples opinions Staten Island is part of New York City just as much as Brooklyn,Queens, the Bronx, and the City (Manhatten). I would never move off of Staten Island even as an adult because it has that Brooklyn feel I grew up with with a little bit of the suburbs. If you ask me we got the best of both worlds.

5th borough where im from. The North Shore is made up of neighborhoods composed of either minorities (St. George) or crazy rich white people (todt hill dongan hills) and is mostly wack. The south shore where im from is mostly guido-ass italian people like me most of whom buy every 50 cent cd but piss their pants at the sight of an actual black person, and aspire to be eminem. The girls down here are mostly hot, hotter than north shore girls or girls from any other boro.
Staten Island is cool from Eltingvile down, every where else you find ugly girls and gay kids

fake ass "borough" of nyc. the only "borough" without subways. kids from there think the north shore is the worst ghetto out there...even though there's like 2 project buildings on the whole island...there's barely any tough areas in staten island except for maybe parts of stapleton and st. george...which wouldn't equal a fraction of whats bad in jersey. pretty-boy greaseballs try to act black and drive daddy's mercedes around and they're all apparently from the mafia...go figure. they talk shit bout jersey when they finally move there cuz they think its one big farm..and thats only cuz they stay in the mansion they moved into in marlboro or colts neck or one of those towns..yet catch em in a bad area of jersey and they get sent back over the outer bridge in a body bag
Staten island guido: yo bro, you from jersey bro, you got tractors where you live bro?
me: yea we got tractors...but i guess you're just mad cuz you're "boro" has no trains and will always be known as brooklyn's little bitch brother
A borough that isn't as bad as every makes it out to be. i live in annadale, and i dont drive a lexus, im gay, and i think the guido's are sooo freakin HOT. Dont knock it till u see them

sure they are high strung and stuck up, but yay for eye candy!
