A borough of New York City (Manhattan, Brooklyn, The Bronx, Queens, and Staten Island). People are obviously Exaggerating aspects of Staten Island. Yes there are rich kids, fake tans, and spikey hair but does every last person have that? NO. Yes people have an acccent, so do people from South Carolina, or Mexico, accents reflect where your from, so they're kind of good, otherwise we'd all talk the same monotone voice.
Staten Island is a borough of NYC

- people have accents, so do you
- some people are rich not everyone
- some boys spike their hair not everyone

Just about half of what was previously said is true. Not everyone is an idiot, we're home to a highly ranked High School, #1 according to the Post. Sure we have Fresh Kills, the mall, 3 movie theaters, and that's about it. But we have a go-karting place somewhere, and nobody's ever too old for Chuck-E-Cheese's or Fun Station. Not everyone's a guido. Not everyone is a republican. Not everyone is rich. We have projects in almost every area. They just may be better in some. As a mid-islander, most people are middle-class. There are quite affluent families, and a lot of Italians, some descendants of mob bosses do remain. The South shore is more affluent and suburban compared to the North Shore but there is a variety of races in both areas. Yeah we have accents, 4 bridges, 1 train line and accents. But we also have some of the best cars, are getting the largest ferris wheel in the world, and an outlet mall. So Staten Island shouldn't be under estimated or stereotyped even though a lot of the teenagers are stuck-up, racist, wannabe ghetto white kids, there are smart, non-Italian, financially stable people all around the island who aren't guidos. We're Suburban/Urban and I love that there are fantastic cars here that people can freely drive unlike in other boroughs.
I live on Staten Island, am a teenage girl, I don't cake on make up, I'm smart, I own Juicy and Coach items, I love the mall, I'm probably not getting a car until I'm at least half done with college, I'm not White or African-American or Hispanic. I'm mostly mid-island, I have lived on the North Shore and I have family on the South Shore and I can prove that a lot of Staten Island stereotypes are complete and utter crap. But we do have a lot of potholes and assholes are common all over New York City.

Yes its known as the forgotten borough, Yes some people have tanning issues, and there are italian people here but there are also russian, african american, asian, spanish, irish, german, and many other cultures here to. To generalize a place without having an open mind is considered steryotyping. True life staten island was a terriable example of how people live here. North Shore and South Shore are deffinatley different but the people can be considered the same. The south shore is more suburbs and the north more urbanized. People on the north and south shore both have jobs or dont and we are all suffering with the economy today so to say that south shore people are rich is just ignorant. Staten Island like any other borough has its good parts and bad parts some people are less fortunate then others but hey thats life happens everywhere. Staten island honestly has nothing to do. Yes theres movie theaters (so old) and ice skating rinks that everyone went to for fun durning junior high (played out) and besides that theres nothing fun about this island. the mall is were people also go to just hang out and window shop which is rediculous.

One of the five boroughs of New York City. Often referred to as "The Forgotten Borough". Aptly named, as there is nothing to do in Staten Island, other than go to the Staten Island mall, or to one of the three movie theaters. Unlike Manhattan or any of the other boroughs, Staten Island is completely divided, the North Shore being the habitat of all African-American, Latinos/Hispanics, Irish, and race and nationality that is not Italian or Russian. The South Shore/Mid-Island is made up primarily of the aforementioned parties.

Speaking as an Irish, North Shore resident, the South Shore is filled with illiterate, close-minded, spoiled children. The "Staten Island" sterotype is completely because of those assholes. Unfortunately, all Caucasian inhabitants of Staten Island are supposed to have a thick Staten Island accent, which is like the retarded child of a New Jersey accent and a Brooklyn accent, tan to an unnatural color, usually orange, and gel the shit out of your hair, if you are a man, or use hairspray like there's a fucking endless supply of it.

The North Shore, however, is known for it's crime, though I would much rather live two blocks from Jersey Street than in Tottenville. This may not come as a shock to some of you, but the KKK has an active chapter located right in Tottenville.

Please, if on a visit to Staten Island, take my advice and get out as quickly as you came. Maybe you can still go to Brooklyn.
Intelligent Staten Islander: Hello, I was wondering if I could ask what time it is?

Guido/Guidette: Ummmmm, n0. I d0nt t4lk to p30pl3 l1ke u.

Intelligent Staten Islander: I'm astounded and scared of the fact that my IQ is slowly decreasing every moment I spend talking to you.

Guido/Guidette: IQ? n0w u g0nna t4lk sh1t?

Intelligent Staten Islander: How did I end up in this cesspool? My God, why have you forsaken me?

A borough of New York that's part suburban and part city.
Staten Islanders live in 3-bedroom houses and either drive, take a bus, a boat, or a train to get to places.
Danielle, sweetie, remember to lock the house before you catch the S56 to school, we don't want some fuck head to break in and steal our big-screen tv and trash the basement's rec-room, I'm taking the X1 to work today, well it's such a nice day, maybe i'll take the S61 to St. George and take the Staten Island ferry, I wanna view the city and smell the ocean.
