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.

The asshole of the universe. A place where white kids who try act like they are black, but fail miserably. A place where the Wu-Tang Clan resides. A place where the the short 'A' sound is pronounced 'aw' by some people. A place where the only thing to do is hang out at the mall.
Guy: Hey are you from Staten Island?
White Kid from SI: Yeah Yo! This place is Gawd awful son. I am wearin' my Fubu and I's be goin' to the mall lata'.

Name given to the small pile of gristle, burnt bits and spit-outs left on the edge of your plate at the end of a meal.
"Have you finished your dinner?"
"What about that last mouthful?"
"Nah, that's just Staten Island."

Dirty ass borough of new york, no trains go to it, you can take ferries with drunk ass captains though. People smoke a ton of weed there but staten island weed is light green and has almost no smell coz its crap. Italians move there and wish they didnt, italian kids try to act black while, and only have one activity outside of smoking weed which is hanging out at the mall
Yo holla paisan! Lets go chill at the mall, then smoke some "weed" after that we can go on the ferry, then go home and eat some lasagna and ravioli
