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.

a place where about 15 people out of the entire population think. kids in staten iland all look the same and if you have an above 50 average people think you're a nerd. even if you are 400 pounds and are the ugliest kid ever you will get as many girls as you want if you 1. spike your hair 2. where a northface jacket 3. are italian 4. are stupid 5. wax your eyebrows. everyone thinks they are in the mafia and thinks they are from the street even though they are all rich as hell.
i went to an ice skating rink in staten island once with a friend, and we were literally the only guys there without spiked hair and a northface jacket, i'm not kidding

1) The long lost borough of NY that is basically a giant pothole and all wiggers with their chrome 22 inch giovannas wonder why their rims are always fucked up. beisdes it being a pothole its a giant dump. and the island is fucking sinking as we know it. Full of wiggers and guidos, who both should die.
Wigger: Yo daddy bought me new rims yesterday and i fucking drove into the pothole by Woodrow Plaza and i wonder why they're already fucked up

Guido: Yo browski, 2 heinekins. Staten Island Rocks for clubs

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 talking about all our dealers get there shit from BROOKLYN. whatever people just dont know what there talking about.
A. "your from staten island"
b. "yes."
A. "Man, you guys are wannabe's thugs and are rich italians"
b. "hmm, Have you ever even been here?"
A. "No, Im from pennsylvania i just here this stuff"
b. "Figures"

the forgotten borough of new york. all of the wiggers seem to just cuddle up over here. the mall isnt as cool as most staten islanders make it seem and ralph's ices isnt that great either. every teenager here is fake as shit. they're either a wannabe metalhead goth that wears tripp pants or a fucking white ~*~ghetto fabulous~*~ fucker.
whatever you do man, do not move to staten island. unless you're like 60 years old. after that no one really cares about you anymore.
yeah well i dont have an example so KUH UH STATEN ISLAND

Staten Island, often never heard of by most people living in New York; the "forgotten borough." It's a pretty, nice, and quiet area to live in. The most greenest borough out of all five boroughs. It's filled with filthy rich people with spoiled kids.
