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 all the mafiaa people from brooklynn go to livee then decide to move to jersey. the accents are annoyingg and everyone owns a northface jacket.. the boys got to the salon (eyebrows waxed and tanning) and so do the girls. everyone on the south shore is a prostitute in training with a bellybutton ring. the southshore girls go to St. joseph sea. cheerleading and basesball are major sports here. if you lived here for about 6 months you probably gotten the finger at least 6 times. everyone is republican and drives like an asshole. everyone has italians blood in them and you probably knoe at least 7 mikes 2 angelos and 10 joeys. all the boyss act like wiggers and make up stupidd gangss. i knoe this cause i live here. in bay terris. EvErY1 tAlKs lYkEs dIsSs Onn dAa cOmPuTeRrR and smell like shitt. the island only smells by arther kill roadd.

the weirdest place in the world.
forgotten borough; should be part of nj
its divided into two parts: North Shore and South Shore;

one train that goes only to the ferry from tville:/
one mall; where all the guidos hang out
the "atrium" is apparently the coolest place ever
pot heads rule the island
the italians here are a discrace to the real ones.
the girls are wananbe whores and the guys think theyre cool if they get action by 13
no night life what so ever.
not suburbian and not a city.
former dump
nice place to live, right?
of course its not all bad... staten island is just 90% stereotypical.
u will find people who actually have a brain... but dont get ur hopes up... ur considered a loser if u have an average over 80.
bad place to live unless u have a car
frustrates the hell outta me.
guy:hey where u from man?
other guy:staten island.
guy:you mustve fucked up bad to end up in a shithole like that.
other guy: don't rub it in.

Staten Island is the most southern point of NYC. The girls are hot, the trees are dank, the beef is real and the spots are hot...Shaolin Rep200420 ^

The saddest place in america. consits of white trash/ghetto niggahs/stuck up white kids/and mafiosos

If you live under the expressway your considered "poor" because its *gasp* the ..north...shore. OMG NOT THE NORTH SHORE!

oh and if you live on the south shore, your considered poor if you dont drive a white mercedes/lexus/bmw etc. you HAVE to try to act like the gottis and you need to be orange 24/7. they even opened a tanning salon at the mall!

i hate it here, i wish this island would sink its useless and the whole city of new york is ashamed that it belongs to it as one of it's boroughs. :]
staten island

avaerage south shore gotti wannabes:

Gotti wannabe 1: Yooo did your dad get his mercedes with his tax evasion money yet?

Gotti wannabe 2: naaa bro he got a white acura

Gotti wannabe 1: Ew your poor.

A floating dump that sits in the New York harbor. Often mistaken as a populated borough.
Joe: "I'm from Staten Island."
Me: "You live in a dump?"
Joe: "No I mean the borough STATEN ISLAND!"
Me: "I have no idea what you're talking about."
